This memorial was originally in the Wilson Church, Perth (Scott Street, I understand) but was relocated to St. Matthews Church when the former congregation was disolved;

Another great post of a memorial window.

The kneeling figure on the left looks like a member of the RAF but the shorts would imply Middle East or far East Service perhaps? Does it represent either G. Millar or H. McIntosh?

Note the Small image of the pelican and her young on the right hand scroll

Yes, I did note the pelican in piety which seems to have been a very much favoured symbol, moreso for the Great War.
A good spot of the airman in shorts....the more you look!
Strong imagery of Jesus showing the signs of the crucifixion in his hands and feet too.
