The HMS Courageous Association Committee discussed the possibility of purchasing a memorial bench to be placed within the National Memorial Arboretum. The initial proposal was put forward by Roger Pescodd and, after discussion, the decision was taken to purchase the bench as a permanent memorial to those of our crew mates who have crossed the bar. The bench, made of hardwood is regularly maintained by the arboretum staff and includes a plaque which contains the ship’s crest and the following inscription, which we felt was apt for those such as Ray Hutchins who was lost at sea, and, of course, for our predecessors who were lost in the sinking of the aircraft carrier:
Should you wish to visit the arboretum and make use of the bench the address of the arboretum is Croxall Road, Alrewas, Staffordshire, DE13 7AR. The bench is located in the Royal Naval Wood and overlooks the Armed Forces Memorial. The bench reference number which, if given to staff, will enable them to direct you is B - 550.
