Dedication

Front Inscription

Dedicated to the men and women of the Merchant Navy who gave their lives willingly for the freedom of others and have no grave but the sea

They have no grave but the cruel sea
No flowers at their head
A rusted hulk their only tombstone
Fast on the ocean bed

They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them
