This is a close up shot I took a few months ago. It is part of the Destroyer Memorial at Chatham Historic Dockyard in Kent.
The memorial commemorates all the Royal Navy destroyer personnel lost during the Second World War.
The destroyers formed the backbone of the Royal Navy and were used in every theatre from the Arctic Circle to the Pacific and in a multitude of roles.
The Historic Dockyard is well worth a visit if you find yourself in the area. A wide range of exhibits including the destroyer HMS Cavalier.
