Sailors Memorial

This beautiful Compass Rose Sundial is at the centre of Sailors Memorial in Waterfront Park. The inscription around the bottom reads "At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them." Around the dial line, are drawings on the porcelain of the ships that were lost during the second World War.

A plaque with the names of those who lost their lives while serving with the Royal Canadian Navy during the second World War, the focal photo point being Lt. Hamton Grey UC. of the fleet Air Arm. Lt. Hamton Grey was the only member who was awarded the Victoria Cross.

On the North side of the monument area stand four flags, the Canadian Flag, the Navy White Ensign, the Canadian Red Maritime Ensign, and the British Columbia Flag.

Location:Waterfront Park, North Vancouver BC
