Rolls-Royce Battle of Britain memorial stained glass window

Rolls-Royce Battle of Britain memorial stained glass window

A photograph from a commission for a detailed image to assist with the production for a replica of this impressive stained-glass window. It was originally located at the Marble Hall site on Nightingale Road and was relocated after the site was closed down by Rolls-Royce.  Produced by Hugh Easton in 1949 it is a historical link to the importance of Rollys-Royce to our country during the Second World War.

As a young 16 year old Rolls-Royce apprentice I remember marveling at this stained-glass window and feeling a deep sense of heritage and pride.  Later on in my apprenticeship I worked alongside a gentleman a few days from retirement, his apprenticeship was spent working on the Merlin engine.

Nearly 30 years later and I’m back in front of the window.
