Sorry but the window proved impossible for me to photo. The short verse by Lt Sales was scratched onto the window.



Thanks to Eric Simpson for following:-
The etching was on a hut window in what is now industrial estate. The hut was one that was being renovated by the Westgarths (Westgarth's Garage) & Cyril Westgarth ensured that the pane was carefully removed. At my suggestion it was framed & hung in D/Bay Library where there already were on the walls enlargements of some of the old Donibristle photos that I had collected. Nothing is known about Lt Sales.

Makes you wonder if his children are aware of it.
