ABOUT THIS IMAGE
Five panels in the south stained glass window of the Shrine of Remembrance at The Australian War Memorial, Canberra, Australia, commemorating the ultimate sacrifice of many for King and Country.
The panels represent the following:
Resource an aircraftman. Symbols: a clamp vice, an electric arc, the sword severing the Gordian Knot and the flame of invention.
Candour a signaller. Main symbol: the open flower; above, an owl’s head fountain and three arrowheads suggest frankness of expression.
Devotion a nurse. Symbols: the Red Cross, the Australian coat of arms and the sign of charity (the pelican feeding her young from her bleeding breast).
Curiosity the uniform is that of a trench mortar battery. The Winged Crown denotes reward of knowledge from inquiry. Above is the symbol of “The Inquiring Eye”.
Independence a naval captain. Details a gyroscope (a striking feature of which is that when set rotating it maintains, independently, its set direction), and the “Stand-off” signal (three vertical red lamps).
The first three verses of I’ll Walk with God, lyrics by Paul Francis Webster may well have been a “theme song” of all those heading off to war zones.
“I’ll walk with God from this day on
His helping hand I’ll lean upon
This is my prayer, my humble plea,
May the Lord be ever with me.
There is no death, though eyes grow dim
There is no fear when I’m near to Him
I’ll lean on Him forever
And He’ll forsake me never.
He will not fail me
As long as my faith is strong,
Whatever road I may walk along…….."
