The base was responsible for the administration of victualing, arming and training of crews for the landing craft used in D-Day:

    Just outside the church is the anchor of the Queen Elizabeth 2. It may not be a war memorial per se, but a plaque commemorates her role as a troop ship and helicopter carrier in the Falklands War:

    The last one I photographed during my holiday was this plaque at the gate of the port of Southampton before boarding our ship for the last leg of the journey, back to our original port of departure at Hamburg:
