On Sunday 18 June 1944, during morning service, The Guards Chapel was hit by a flying bomb. which killed 121 people.  The entire building was destroyed except for the apse (the piece of the building over the altar).  

There was a memorial to Captain Barton which was destroyed, with the following inscription

ROBERT JOHNSTON BARTON, Lieutenant and Captain Coldstream Guards, born 1849, younest son of Thomas Johnston Barton, Glendalough, Co Wicklow.  Killed 28th March 1879, in the attempt to save the life of a wounded brother officer, near Zlobani Mountain, in Zululand. "Post Tenebras Lux"

I'm sure Tim Needham, mentions this somewhere on the forum.

This was possibly the replacement.

Yes, there were AZW memorials in the Old Guards Chapel to Capt the Hon Ronald Campbell, Coldstream Guards and The Hon Hugh Rudolph Gough, Coldstream Guards

in addition to the individual memorials there was actually a stained glass window dedicated to Captains Campbell and Barton.
