Norwegian War Memorial

The Norwegian Navy and Merchant Fleet presented this large granite boulder in 1978 as thanks for British support during World War 2.


The memorial consists of a boulder of pre-Cambrian granite, mounted on three smaller stones. The front is engraved: "You gave us a safe haven in our common struggle for freedom and peace". The back reads: "Worked and shaped by forces of nature for thousands of years".

The Norwegian War Memorial can be found in the Cockpit along Serpentine Road, opposite the West Boat House.
