The theme of the first Window is weapons of war.


The quotation reads: "I heard a voice from Heaven saying unto me write";
there is no reference on the window but this is taken from Revelation 14 v13:

"And I heard a voice from Heaven saying unto me, Write, blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them."

Starting from the bottom of the left-hand side and going in a clockwise direction, the panels illustrate:
