849 Naval Air Squadron





In May 2003,on a cold and grey day, a memorial garden was dedicated to the memory of those who died on 22nd March 2003.

dedication of the stone and garden


The garden was created by members of 849 Squadron.  

Many people left flowers, in memory of the young men who died, at the gates of RNAS Culdrose in March. The majority of these were composted and dug into the garden as it was being made.

The garden is seen by the squadron as a place to sit and contemplate: or just to enjoy some fresh air!  Click on the thumbnails to see the garden in its infancy in May 2003, as it was in April, July and September 2004 and, September 2005 and, most recently, in its new home in Culdrose Memorial Garden.


The Memorial Stone has now moved to its new home in the Memorial Garden of RNAS Culdrose.  Click here to discover the journey it took before former colleagues left their old buildings for a new 'home' on the other side of the airfield.
