  • Never forgotten. An appropriate depiction of the service provided. Stands tall in the Embankment gardens.  more »
  • We often forget the bravery of the men who served our country through difficult and dangerous times. These guys flew off ships to protect the convoys. Respect to you all.  more »

  • The Fleet Air Arm Memorial is a memorial in Victoria Embankment that commemorates the founding and services of the Royal Naval Air Service and the Fleet Air Arm of the Royal Navy. The memorial is made up of a thin stone column on which stands a statue of a naval airman outfitted in a flying suit. His arms outstretched and attached to each arm is a set of artificial wings, alluding to Daedalus of Greek mythology, as well as evoking an image of an angel. A fine statue and tribute to the airmen who have served and died for their country.
  • This bronze figure represents Daedalus, the Greek guy who crafted wings for himself and his son Icarus to escape Crete. But he used wax to hold the feathers and Icarus flew so close to the sun that the wax melted and he fell into the sea. Daedalus survived to mourn the fallen. Kempster designed the memorial and Butler created the statue. Unveiled by the Prince of Wales.
