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 Lee-on-Solent Memorial is dedicated to the 1,400 Fleet Air Arm personnel of World War Two who have no known graves.
Lee-on-Solent Fleet Air Arm War Memorial
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. The roll of honour lists of Fleet Air Arm personnel are carved into stone on 43 panels and they are grouped together into small alcoves or bays with 7 panels per bay. The lists are grouped by date, starting in 1939, and by rank or Branch, such as Air Artificers, WRNS, or Photographer.
