A stained glass window commemorates Pilot Officer Stephen John Leach, who was killed on active service in July 1941 during World War Two.  He was flying Hurricane Z4694 when killed in action on 8 July 1941 in North Africa. 

On the 2nd March 1947, twelve stained glass windows were unveiled in Geelong Grammar's Chapel of All Saints. The windows commemorate twelve old boys who lost their lives during World War Two. The Reverend J. D. McKie, Bishop of Geelong declared that the windows would serve as a reminder of gallant young men who had laid down their lives.

Shall There Be
Any More Pain.
