Artist's Description

National Destroyer Memorial, Historic Naval Dockyard Chatham
Unveiled by HRH Prince Philip on 14 November 2007 and dedicated to the men who lost their lives on HM Destroyers during the 1939-45 war, this memorial consists of two adjacent parts. HMS CAVALIER a World War 2 Destroyer is alongside and permanently moored at the Historic Naval Dockyard Chatham and is dedicated to the 142 RN destroyers destroyed by enemy action.

A few steps away is a massive bronze wall sculpted in high relief by the renowned Kenneth Potts. This wall shows a destroyer engaged in the sort of activity experienced by so many in the vastness of the North Atlantic including rescuing survivors. A Roll of Honour on the reverse, not only lists the RN ships lost but also records the sacrifices of British, Dominion, and other allied destroyers lost in that war.
