First built in 1914, this memorial commemorates officer, ranks and ratings of Plymouth and from other navies of the Commonwealth, who were lost at sea in those two world wars.
The names of over 23,000 men and women are recorded on this memorial; of these some 7,000 died during the First World War and 16,000 during the Second World War. All were buried or lost at sea or were otherwise denied, by the fortunes of war, a known and honoured grave.

Compromises in model construction and positioning due to GE topography.
