MEMORIAL DAY - National Memorial Arboretum
I had high expectations for the day but I must say when Commodore Harwood's Broad Pennant, the actual one flown at The Battle from his Flag Ship HMS Ajax, was unveiled from the memorial by the 4 survivors able to make it: John Garrard & Ted Wicks, both Ajax, and Jim London & Basil Trott, both HMS Exeter, those expectations were far exceeded. The whole day was perfect and truly enjoyed by all who were present.
Several TV clips can be found on the internet for example:
