Remembered with honour


The Prince of Wales recently unveiled a new memorial dedicated to the 6,000 men and women who have lost their lives on active Service with the Fleet Air Arm of the Royal Navy.

The memorial features a bronze winged figure of Daedalus, and  bears the inscription: "To the everlasting memory of all the men and women from the United Kingdom, the British Commonwealth and the many Allied Nations who have given their lives whilst serving in the Royal Naval Air Service and the Fleet Air Arm."

Fleet Air Arm Lee-on-Solent Memorial, Hampshire, UK. This Memorial is on the main sea front,  near the former principal base of the Fleet Air Arm. It was chosen as the site for the Memorial to the men of that service who died during the Second World War and who have no known grave. The Memorial consists of a rectangular column of Portland stone bearing the inscription: THESE OFFICERS AND MEN OF THE FLEET AIR ARM DIED IN THESERVICE OF THEIR COUNTRY AND HAVE NO GRAVE BUT THE SEA. 1939-1945. Almost 2,000 names are carved on the panels.
