about 1973

Single-light window with an image of a ship and praying figures at either side of the dedication.

artist: Frederick W. Cole

Church of St Paul, Barry, Vale of Glamorgan
south wall of the south aisle

An almost identical window at the Church of All Hallows-by-the-Tower in London is signed by F.W. Cole and dated 1973, providing the date and maker for this window.

Dedication: 'Remember Captain George Boothby and crew of the "Royston Grange" lost with all hands in the River Plate. 1972. R.I.P.'

For an account of the tragedy, see the Official Journal of the United Kingdom Maritime Pilots' Association, 9 January 2012. The ship caught fire when it hit an oil tanker in thick fog, which explains the fire at the top of the design.
