  Looking Back Ten Years 440 Productions (Wartime Heritage Association) Attends the 2004 Telegraphist Air Gunners Association Memorial Weekend Lee-On-Solent, UK After WWII, Lee-on-Solent was selected as the site for the Fleet Air Arm Memorial as it was the location of the large Naval Air Station HMS Daedelus. It is one of the lesser known Memorials in the UK, but remembers 1,925 men of the Fleet Air Arm who have no known grave, most of them having been lost at sea. The memorial is on Marine Parade West. It was unveiled on 20 May 1953 by the Duchess of Kent. The memorial was constructed by the Imperial War Graves Commission. Source: http://www.fleetairarmoa.org/fleet-air-arm-remembrance-memorials
