About the memorial: Dundee Harbour was, from August to October 1939, the war station of the Royal Navy’s 2nd Submarine Flotilla. From April 1940 to May 1945, it was the base of the 9th Submarine Flotilla, a unique international force of British, Dutch, Free French, Norwegian and Polish crews. Russian submarine crews were also based in Dundee in the summer of 1944. Six submarines and 296 sailors and commandos were lost on war operations from Dundee. Nine stones of remembrance standing upright facing towards one another. Largest stone features cut outs of submarine shapes in the bottom half of stone. Other stones feature etching of submarine, name of submarine and names of dead. Lettering engraved in white. Do not follow sat nav for vehicular access; drive to end of road (memorial on left) and enter quay for parking. Dedicated in 2009, Dundee International Submarine Memorial honours the gallantry of all the British, French, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish and Russian submariners who sailed from the River Tay during the Second World War and commemorates the 296 who are ‘Still on Patrol’.
