There is a window in St Ethelreda's in Old Hatfield just outside Hatfield House (where the tank was trialed in front of the big wigs for the first time).
Unfortunately I am not savvy enough to post a picture of the Christopher Wall designed window to three members of the Cecil Family, but information of the window is as follows:
The window is dedicated to the memory of three of the Cecil family and the inscription reads "TO THE GLORY OF GOD AND IN MEMORY OF RUPERT EDWARD GASCOYNE CECIL BORN JANY 20TH 1895 KILLED IN ACTION JULY 11 1915 AND OF RANDLE WILLIAM GASCOYNE CECIL BORN NOVR 28TH 1889 KILLED IN ACTION DECR 1ST 1917 AND OF JOHN ARTHUR GASCOYNE CECIL BORN MARCH 28TH 1893 KILLED IN ACTION AUGUST 27TH 1918 I LOOK FOR THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD AND THE LIFE OF THE WORLD TO COME”. The window consists of three lights.. The window was presented in 1920 by James, Fourth Marquess of Salisbury, in memory of his three nephews. Their father was Lord William Cecil, then Bishop of Exeter who had previously been rector at Hatfield. The three angels in the work represent "Trial and Sacrifice" (crown of thorns), "Victory and Triumph" (resurrection and torch) and "Christian Duty" (baptism of the infant). The red seraphim in the tracery above represents "Divine Love" and the blue seraphim represents "Divine Wisdom

Seems before Lt Col Wilson's time but some of B Company are there - Lt W W Brown on the right seated in a kilt. Not sure if the Pipe Major is Peter MacLeod later famous for composing Hugh Kennardy and the Conundrum

May I ask a somewhat tangential question? Did stained glass artisans sign their work in any way? I ask because my great grandfather made stained glass windows like these in Exeter, and I often wondered if we would ever be able to determine if any of his work still survives.
Posted 07 April 2012 - 06:20 pm
Certainly. His name is Walter Emmanuel Harold Gale, born 07 APR 1863 in Exeter, England.
I am sure many stained glass window painters signed their work, as most artists would do on a painting, drawing or sculpture, and some of the windows in this thread are attributed to certain named artists.
If you would like to post your great grandfather's name, I am sure myself and others will keep a lookout for his work.
