Cheshire Brigade, Royal Field Artillery

I happened to have a couple of hours to kill when I was in Chester the other week and so popped into the cathedral hoping to find memorials to Chester or Cheshire-related units. I was not disappointed. The window above is one of many stained glass windows in the cloister garden and I took photos of all of those which related to the services.
This particular window is dedicated in memory of the members of the Cheshire Brigade, Royal Field Artillery, a Territorial Force unit. The theatres in which the Brigade served appear in panels to the left and right:

whilst the simple panel below indicates that there is further detail to be found inside the cathedral.

Here it is:
