The stained glass window commemorates those who died in service or were killed in action during World War One.

Messrs. Wilson Bros, of Devonport, have just completed the construction of a very handsome honor board for St. James Church of England, Northdown. The board contains 30 names, which have been artistically written by Mr.T. J. Young. The board, which is constructed of Tasmanian oak, and is handsomely embellished, will cost about £14. In addition to the honor board, the Northdown congregation intend to erect a colored chancel window in honor of the men who have fallen. To date, nine have made the supreme sacrifice.
