Stained Glass Window St Marys Church Cardiff
Stained glass memorial window commission designed and made by Bryn Young for the Russian Convoy Club at St Mary's Church Cardiff.
The window commemorates the valiant efforts by the Merchant Navel Seamen during the second World War. Surviving members of the Russian Convoy Club commissioned the window which measures over 13' feet in height and 4' foot wide. An inscription to the base of the window 'Oh hear us when we cry to Thee' taken from the hymn Eternal Father, Strong to Save traditionally associated with seafarers. The main theme of the window depicts a shipwrecked survivor being saved from the sea, fellow crewmen in a lifeboat intern about to be rescued themselves, with Chris the Lord looking over them. Below is the Russian Convoy Club emblem with the lower section of the window depicting a typical scene of a convoy passage through arctic seas.
