The Memorial commemorates the sacrifice of almost countless personnel lost at sea in war and peacetime along the trading routes of the world.  The stone column, 5 metres high, reflects a tradition going back to classical times, with a crown of ships bows and sails based on the Merchant Navy crest.  Figures, approximately 20cm high, illustrate life on board and docking.  Panels above and below show merchant ships through history, the danger of war, rocks and storms, trading all over the world and the importance of nautical college training.
