Coastal command memorial

Hello there,

The girls were with my folks in London over Easter week, and I came up for a day and then flew home with them at the end.

While we were there, we went to Westminster Abbey and had a look at the memorial they have just put up for all the members of coastal command.

Here are the photos I took. I fiddled them a bit to bring up the contrast a bit so you can read them better.

This first photo is the main memorial stone.

This was carved into the wall at the bottom and slightly to the right of the main sculpture.

You may have to click on this to read it properly, but this is the inscription below the sculpture.

I might add that it SNOWED that was FREEZING! I am turning into a wimp.
