Full Description

Commissioned to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the foundation of the Special Air Service, the Ascension memorial by renowned artist John Maine RA is a powerful presence in this ancient building. The memorial comprises a spectacular stained-glass window above a polished blue stone sculpture below, presenting the viewer with a journey from darkness to light, from quiet contemplation to richly colourful light that becomes brighter and more vibrant as the eye is drawn upwards. This beautifully illustrated book tells the story of the commission in the words of the Regiment, the cathedral community and the artist himself, from first thoughts to final installation.
