These window is a memorial to William Meade Lindsley Fiske, affectionately known as 'Billy Fiske'. He was a pilot officer of the 601 Squadron, who at the age of only 29 gave his life in the Battle of Britain. He is buried at Boxgrove Priory.
The heavily etched stained glass design represents loyalty and the triumph of friendship, and the linking of two nations through the laying down of a life in brave and committed service. This is the message held within the art.
