Plymouth Naval Memorial

These two pictures show how the Royal Naval Memorial to commemorate those who died at sea or in service of one of the Royal Navies had to develop over the Two World Wars. In the top picture you can see the original Memorial being opened. It had very similar sister memorials in Portsmouth and Chatham the other two dockyards. However, by the end of the Second World War, many more names needed to be added. So a whole series of new panels had to be added to the original structure.
