Memorial - Maritime Museum Jersey - Part One

Outside the Maritime Museum stands a rather impressive memorial. The memorial is to those islanders who removed from the island and sent to concentration camps and prisons during the Second World War. Not all returned.

The following are pictures of the marble stones which bears the carvings of  the 20 individuals who did return. Whilst the memorial is expressive, the stones are dreadful to photograph!
