A pair of stained glass windows at Wanstead Methodist Church, Hermon Hill, commemorates four servicemen associated with the church who died in the First World War. The left hand window depicts Christ holding a Coronet (crown) in his raised hands; the biblical figures of David and Solomon, who were Kings of Israel, are below. The right hand window shows St. George with his head bowed to receive the Coronet from Christ. Below St. George are the biblical figures of Gamaliel and Samson.
Gamaliel was a Pharisee doctor of Jewish Law who prevented the executions of the Apostles who had continued to teach the gospel after the Jewish authorities had banned it. Samson was a biblical hero who was given superhero strength to defeat his enemies. It is not known if the biblical figures were chosen to represent the four servicemen.
A brass plaque situated between the two windows records the names of the four men who gave their lives, along with their regiment: Douglas Haydn Garner, Wilfred Ashton Piercy, Herbert (Hubert) Septimus Ray, Herbert William Robinson.
