Arrived to see the name of a relative who died serving on Tempest but found we found it fenced off due to work being carried out. There was nothing on the website saying the memorial was closed off. A wasted trip.

The Naval Memorial sits in a prominent position on Plymouth Hoe. It is a fitting tribute to those who served and lost their lives at sea. There are so many names. It is well maintained and well worth stopping to visit to pay respects.

Larger than you think and very moving. Worth a visit to see this piece of history with all naval losses during both world wars. Close to the Hoe.

Went to look for my wife's uncle's name. Quite moving. Lost at sea in the Mediterranean Sea, WW2. So many names with no future.

The memorial is really well kept and has an air about it. It well worth spending a few minutes just reading the name of those that gave everything for our freedom.

I certainly made no comment about 'sitting around' and am well aware of its significance, thank you.
