A design series of stained glass windows for the Baltic Exchange memorial to the 60 members of the Exchange who lost their lives during the war. Forsyth's stained glass was unveiled in 1922. It consisted of a half-dome and five large windows below, which were installed over a staircase to the lower floor. The subject is heroic and likens the British Empire to the Roman Empire. The dome and windows were made up of many pieces of carefully selected coloured glass, which were painted and stained by skilled glass painters to represent the human figures, architectural and floral detail of Forsyth's original design. After firing, the glass pieces were assembled into windows and held together by a network of lead strips.
