heres another cool scottish one.

This bronze memorial was unveiled in August 1924 to commemorate members of the Cameronians who fell in the First World War. In 1947 the inscription was include a commemoration of those who died in the Second World War, and in 1968 a tablet was added to mark the disbandment of the regiment.

The sculpture depicts a sergeant "advancing over the top", symbolising Victory. On his right (not shown in this photograph) is the dead body of a young officer, symbolising Sacrifice. A Lewis gunner (in the foreground) covers the advancing troops with gunfire and, in the words of the artist, shows the "determination to succeed... for which our men were so remarkable".
The level of detail is just simply amazing.

According to Navy tradition, they have been given a proper burial at sea.

Leave 'em there along with their shipmates that survived the attack and have since been buried alongside them.

Are you saying that others have been given burials there, or do you mean at sea in general.

I feel leaving them is appropriate. They died onboard ship, and a memorial in their honor has been raised. If the survivors, and the fallen's families dont have an issue, then I dont either. And, it IS navy tradition, for the fallen to be buried at sea.
