These two windows are in the South wall of Memorial Hall (the dining hall).

These windows, originally from the Presbyterian Church in Somerset East, were presented to Kingswood College by the Brown family of Glen Avon, direct descendents of Robert Hart who is regarded as the first British settler, on his retirement from the management of Somerset Farm.  He received Glen Avon as a grant from the Crown in recognition for his outstanding services in the army and as a settler on the Eastern frontier. 

Lt W H H Brown (1936-37) served with the SAAF as a fighter pilot and was killed in action over El Alemain during the Second World War.
