about 1920

A single-light window, with the Dove of the Holy Spirit dscending upon the open Bible, the symbol of the Calvinistic Methodist Church. Below is a list of the men who lost their lives. Two lit torches appear at the side.



Penrallt Baptist Chapel, Bangor, Gwynedd
vestibule

The flaming torch can be symbolic of martyrdom (compare with emblem of St Dorothea). It is also an emblem of the Passion, deriving from John 18:3.
