War Memorial Window, South
This window on the south wall was given by the congregation in memory of 38 members and adherents who died in the First World War; it was dedicated on the 20th March 1921. It and its partner opposite were designed in the Stephen Adam studios where Alf Webster had worked and it is easy to imagine that those who worked on it were thinking about the loss of their former colleague.
The theme of this window is 'Sacrifice' and the story depicted is Abraham about to sacrifice his son Isaac when God intervenes and provides a ram instead. The lower panels also show some of the devastation of war, including the first use of tanks.

War Memorial Window, North
This window is another gift from Sir Hugh Reid in memory of his son and of all the young men of Auchinairn and Springburn killed in the First World War. It was installed on the north wall at the same time as the one opposite. The theme here is 'The Supreme Sacrifice' with the top panels showing the Crucifixion with the disciple John, Jesus's mother, Mary and the other faithful women looking on. The lower panels Jesus calling his disciples to sacrifice and service. Again we see scenes from the war in the bottom panels.

FOLLOW ME AND I WILL MAKE YOU FISHERS OF MEN

TO THE GLORY OF GOD AND IN MEMORY OF J.R. AND HIS COMRADES FROM SPRINGBURN WHO FOUGHT AND FELL IN THE GREAT WAR 1914 – 1919
“GREATER LOVE HATH NO MAN THAN THIS THAT A MAN LAY DONE HIS LIFE FOR HIS FRIENDS”

I don't recall seeing war graves on a stained glass window before. Thank you for posting them, John

Kind regards

Adam
