This window is by Bernard Partridge and from "Punch".

To the "Princess Pats", the first Canadians Regiment to enter the war came the honour of being the first of the Allied troops victoriously to re-enter Mons, the historic city where in 1914 the gallant British "Old Contemptibles" has first fought so desperately. The City was completely occupied by the Canadians by two o'clock on the morning of November 11th, three hours before the signing of the Armistice, a new record being established by breaking the German's strongest defenses, and reaching the furthest point of the Allies' great advance.
