John Charlton was born in Euroa, Victoria, Australia, and in 1901 served with the 5th Victorian Mounted Rifles. He died in Pretoria on 16 August 1901 due to enteric fever. The town of Euroa paid for and had installed a stained glass window which is now displayed at the Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne.

The story of the window is here: www.mhhv.org.au/?p=5494 .

The display was opened by the Governor of Victoria, on June 8. Her speech is here: www.governor.vic.gov.au/victorias-govern...es/speech/speech/591

Detail of the display at the Shrine is here: www.shrine.org.au/Exhibitions/Permanent-...lton-Memorial-Window .

Mark, thank you for sharing this with us. A happy ending with the original window now on public display, and it's something I'd consider visiting Australia to see.

I visited the Shrine again today, for one of the Talks, and decided to have a look at the Memorial Window in situ. I must admit, I was a little disappointed it was tucked away in a corner, but I suppose there isn't really a lot of room in the Galleries.

Anyway, here are some images. [/u]
