In regard to the Hellyer window in St Mary's Church, Brixham this is the only example I have ever come across and I am very surprised that it was allowed.

There are 2 windows in St Peters Church Woolton Liverpool to two brothers with the surname Johnson one died in the Boer war and the other in the Great War. There is also a Great War window in St Hilda's Church Hunts Cross Liverpool for the Great War whose impact has been all but lost by an extension built behind it.

I know of two in Essex; Willingale and Halstead, Holy Trinity.
I have been researching the Saulez Memorial window at Willingale for a little while off and on. The Halstead one I discovered a couple of weeks ago.
In addition, there is a generic memorial stained glass at Chelmsford Cathedral.
In Norfolk, North Walsham has a generic memorial window and there is the Beck family window at West Newton, near Sandringham.

The window in Theberton Church, Suffolk to Lt Col Charles Doughty-Wylie VC shows a knight in armour with the deceased's features. (Sorry - no image available).

Until relatively recently there was no outdoor War Memorial in my home town (Wincanton) and Remembrance Services focused on the two memorial windows inside the church. Next time I'm at home I'll try to get a photograph or two.

I was able to track down an excellent photograph of the stained glass Memorial Window in Theberton Church commemorating
Lt Col Charles Doughty-Wylie VC., and as you say, it appears to clearly show his features as St. George, slaying the dragon. Amazing.

I have just received a copy of Allen Frantzen's Bloody Good: Chivalry, Sacrifice and The Great War in the post and a cursory glance shows a number of references to memorial windows. If you are interested in the topic well worth getting hold of a copy.
