Location High Street, Frankston, Victoria, Australia
Type stained_glass_window
Description

The window appears to commemorate war service, with the badges of the RAAF and Australian Army in the left hand and the RAN and Merchant Navy badges in the right hand light. The central panel of St. Michael, slaying the dragon and weighing justice, also refers to service and sacrifice, although no connection has as yet been made with the couple commemorated by the window. The window was installed during the absence of the incumbent vicar as he disapproved of references to war of any kind being placed in the church. On his return he was apparently forced to accept a fait acclompli. For a number of years, Treven Barry cut glass, glazed panels and installed windows under the supervision of the stained glass artist, Derek Pearse (1928-2007), and he may have done so for this commission too.
