NWE Mail: "Submariner Memorial Appeal - Competition To Celebrate The RN Launched By BAE In Barrow"

soleil

War Hero
A COMPETITION to design a new memorial to mark the role Royal Navy submariners have played over the last 119 years is to be launched at BAE Systems.

The competition will be launched on Friday, February 28 at BAE Systems, in Barrow, where over 300 submarines have been built since 1901. BAE Systems is currently constructing the Astute and Dreadnought classes of submarine for the UK Royal Navy.

School children will be encouraged to draw up plans for the tribute and could win prizes, including £1,000 for the winning design. The winner will also be invited to attend the opening of the memorial by HRH Prince William, Commodore-in-Chief Submarines.

Cdr Tom Herman OBE RN, Hon Submarine Regimental Secretary, said: "We'd like to encourage children from across the naval service and the UK to come up with ideas to fittingly remember those who lost their lives while serving in these iconic boats.

"The Submarine Service is aiming to raise £300,000 and is looking across the submarine community among serving, retired and their families as well as the broader public, many of whom will have had friends or relations who have served in boats."

Cliff Robson, Managing Director at BAE Systems Submarines, said: "We’re delighted to be hosting the launch of this campaign. We have a long and proud history of submarine design and construction and it's fitting that we should remember the hundreds who have served aboard Barrow-built boats."

I'm not sure I like the winning entry. Maybe the concept's ok, but with an actual fin taken from a decommissioned boat.

It certainly looks very glossy and professional.

I'm particularly impressed by Alfred's entry, to be honest; excellent work by someone who is only 5.

You can see how much effort went into doing his very best writing.

BZ Alfred.

I'm wondering who Zoe's Grandad is ;) ;)

I like to concept of the winning design but feel that a WW2 Conning Tower would be more in keeping with those who represent the most lives lost.
