BRIGHTON East Sussex
St. Peter

This reredos echoes in its form the reredos at Dartmouth, and also the War Memorial at Ashburton. The painting is by Edward Prynne. The centre panel depicts Christ in Majesty, and on either side, somewhat unusually, are St. George and St. Andrew. Perhaps this is explained by the fact that this piece is another War Memorial. Fellowes Prynne's work after the First World War was virtually exclusively such memorials, after two of his sons were killed in that war.
