This Memorial will be found on the main sea front, sited on Marine Parade
West, approximately half a mile west of the town centre.
The principal base of the Fleet Air
Arm, Lee-on-the-Solent, Hampshire, 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 THE SERVICE OF THEIR COUNTRY AND HAVE NO GRAVE BUT THE SEA. 1939-1945.
To each side of this central memorial stone is a wall bearing three recessed
panels of Westmorland slate, on which are carved almost 2,000 names.
