Lectern, St George's Church
The eagle is a symbol of the resurrection or ascension of Christ due to the fact that it soars upwards. By extension, the eagle symbolises baptised Christians, who have symbolically died and risen with Christ.

The Eagle Lectern was placed in the Church in 1923 in memory of the 63 British and Australian soldiers who died in the Fovant Camp Hospital and were buried in the churchyard during the 1914-18 war.
