The memorial text at the base of the St John and David Livingstone window is:

Four stained glass windows which were given to St Mark’s Church of England, Camberwell, by Mrs E. L. Duke in memory of her parents and husband were unveiled and dedicated by Bishop McKie of Geelong, at the morning service yesterday. The windows, which were the work of Mrs Napier Waller, represent St Luke and Florence Nightingale, St John and David Livingstone. They are in keeping with the scheme of subjects for all the windows based on the Te Deum. Bishop McKie said that devotion, service, and sacrifice, as exemplified by the subjects in the windows represented the best in Christianity and community life. Canon P. W. Robinson, the vicar, paid a high tribute to the work of Mrs Duke’s parents and husband for St Mark’s, especially in the early days of the church there. Members of her family gave of their best in the interests of the Church and the community. That spirit of service and sacrifice was needed probably to a greater extent now than in the past.”
