"In honour of the Navy and to the abiding memory of these Ranks and Ratings of this Port who laid down their lives in the defence of the Empire and have no other grave than the sea and their comrades of Australia, South Africa, Newfoundland, India, Pakistan, Ceylon, Fiji, Gold Coast, Hong Kong, Kenya, Malaya, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Burma, whose names are here recorded."
7,000 names from WWI, and 16,000 from WWII. Designed by Sir Robert Stodart Lorimer (1864-1929) and, like most British war memorials, constructed from Portland limestone. Lorimer's memorials also stand in Portsmouth and Chatham, the other two major Royal Navy bases of that era, and there are similar memorials in Bombay, Chittagong, Halifax and Auckland.
