Holiday Photos 6 ... The Merchant Navy Memorial

On the second day of my holiday I went to The Tower of London (Dad gave me the money for the ticket, which was a lovely gift).  Just opposite the station is the merchant Navy Memorial, for all those buried at sea.  Dad's uncle, who was only 7 years older than him, was in the merchant Navy, and was sunk 3 times ... but survived, and only passed away in the early '80's.

The memorial full of names of those who dies in WWI and are buried at sea
