The Second World War extension was unveiled by Princess Margaret in 1954 and commemorates almost 16,000 men and women. Canada and New Zealand opted to commemorate their naval dead at home, but the memorial commemorates sailors from all other parts of the Commonwealth. With its prominent position on the Hoe, the Plymouth memorial has become a well-loved landmark for the people of Plymouth and for many years has provided the city with a focus for remembrance.
