The windows will be a memorial to the men and women in the Pittsworth district who served in the Great War. The cost will be covered by a gift from the late Mrs. Hogarth, of Balgownie, who was a generous supporter of the Pittsworth parish.

The beauty of St. Andrew's Church of England, Pittsworth, one of the most picturesque churches in Queensland, will be added to when three war memorial windows, the bequest of the late Mrs Annie Hogarth of Balgownie station will be unveiled by Mr. Angus Hogarth, the only one of Mrs. Hogarth's four sons to return from the Great War. The windows, which cost £420, are in memory of all soldiers and others who rendered service during the years 1914-1918.
