Surprisingly not listed on UKNIWM

The memorial is a two panel stained glass window in Tinwald Church, OS Map Ref: NY 003 816

Transcription of text (if I have managed it correctly):

"If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea ever there shall Thy hand lead me, and Thy right hand shall hold me.

To the glory of GOD and in proud memory of Lieut. Euan B. C. Charteris MC, 9th Batt. K.O.S.B., and 2nd Parachute Batt., Born 10th March 1920 - Killed in action, Tunisia 3rd December 1942"

The fifth photo is a not part of this memorial but is a companion memorial (not war memorial) to another member of the family (Brig Gen John Charteris CMG DSC and MP - Late RE). It is directly opposite this memorial in the church and is obviously of the same design and presumably by the same artist so it seemed a shame to separate them.
