I have a jolly roger in 2 pieces. Found a replacement. I'd say congrats for having 2 pieces and not 200,000. Lost a blackout back glass once. What a mess.

 Mind you, Ive never tried this... but if you have a piece of glass cut that was slightly smaller.. leaving the edges free to sit in the slots...  and if theres enough room between the bulbs... you may be able to use a translucent glue to affix the two parts to each other, and then fix the smaller piece of glass to the rear of them, centered.

 The light may show edges... so try to cut the 2nd sheet close to the border as possible.  Probably want to lightly mark measured lines with a fine point dry erase marker.. so you know where to set the glass down.  A very light tack painters tape might work too... but you may not want to risk pulling up loose paint after the fact.
