It's well worth the visit if you're in the area. Also don't forget to visit the submarine across the road when you're here.

This is a solemn, tasteful, and informative memorial. It was obviously intended as a fitting tribute to those who gave their lives at sea, not as a tourist draw nor to provide "entertainment". So if you're looking for "selfies", computer games or animation go to...More

I happened upon this Memorial in 1990 while driving around in northern FRG. I still have a lot of stark and moving memories of walking the grounds. The story that I usually tell is about all the Ships' Horns and Whistles I heard while viewing...More
