The window was designed by Alan Younger, made by David Knowles of Oxted, Surrey, and Stone masons: Mr David Hailstone and Mr David Crouch of Wight Stonemasonry, Chale, and installed in the south wall of church, comprising of three light memorial windows. Funded by public subscription of £14,000. At a dedication Countess Mountbatten of Burma unveiled the window on Tuesday 12th May 1992.

The cabinet below the window contains a Roll of Honour listing 272 Burma veterans.
