The St.Barnabas POW
Memorial Window,
Bathurst, NSW, Australia

A number of WWII Padres are associated with this church, including Cliff Ussher who was Chaplain at Changi.

The memorial to WWII POWs was suggested by Verger Greg Standen. The design by Canberra artist Ruth Hingston was crafted by the Rector Paul Woodhart. The window was dedicated in 1997.

The window features elements of a POW camp - barbed wire, a candle of hope and a Red Cross parcel - set against the Cross. It is back-lit at night.

A number of RAF and RAAF ex-POWs live in the area: the Australian 8th Division trained at Bathurst before going to Singapore, where most were captured.
