Question Royal Canadian Horse Artillery Stained Glass

Hello all,

I'm writing an article on a memorial stained glass window featuring several badges for the alumni journal. Comments/additions/corrections would be appreciation.

Following the Remembrance Service, 1967 a memorial stained glass window was unveiled by the Commandant, 2576 Commodore W. P. Hayes, CD at the Royal Military College of Canada, Kingston, Ontario. 1967 was the 15th of Graduation of the Class of 1952.

“Colonel E. Geoffrey Brooks memorial" was installed in the passageway leading to Sir Arthur Currie Hall.

A stained glass window featuring the Royal Canadian Horse Artillery Crest, the Royal Military College of Canada Colour and Panet House by Robert McCausland Limited is a memorial to Colonel E. Geoffrey Brooks DSO OBE CD (RMC 1952).

Geoffrey Brooks (1918-1964) was a gallant officer, stern but fair, decorated for leadership during WW II, and again later in Korea. Brooks lived at Panet House while serving as RMC’s Staff Adjutant 1948-1950 and is still well remembered by those who knew him, especially from that first post-war Class. Brooks went from the College to Korea to command the ‘Guns’ and for that was awarded his OBE. His appointment as Director of Artillery was for the Cdn Army (a Staff appointment in Army HQ) in August 1960.*

The Colonel E. G. Brooks Window was presented to the College by Dr. John Pike, a member of the New One Hundred which entered RMC in 1948, on behalf of the donors. The funds for the Brooks window came from the Class of 1952 (otherwise known as the New One Hundred and their classmates who entered Royal Roads in 1948, there being no graduates in the intervening years except Midshipmen going for further training after 2 years at the Colleges, and some who went directly to service as a 2Lt).
