Damon Wells Chapel, Pembroke College

Having photographed two windows within the chapel, The Crucifixion seemed the better of the two, however, both required very careful placement of the tripod as the 85mm lens was on reflection, probably 5mm too powerful for the location!

On entering the chapel, you are greeted by The Crucifixion window (partially obscured by the 1995 Létourneau organ).  The biblical scene, flanked by St George and St Andrew, holding the shields of England and Scotland, is a Great War memorial.

Inscription (translated from Latin):
