About the memorial: The artwork is a poignant memorial to those who served at the site and alludes to loss in both the human and natural worlds. It consists of a series of engraved number markers, replicating the original rifle range markings, and an information plaque inscribed with the phrase "Remembering the Fragility of People and Nature". The gate to the nature reserve has been adorned with a flock of cast iron British birds in military camouflage. Unveiled 9 April 2017 by Nathan Lee, Head of the Heritage Lottery Fund North West. Funded with a £97,400 grant from The Heritage Lottery Fund. The NGR given is that cited by the IWM at the car park at the end of the motor road at Earnse Point. The nature reserve itself is almost a 2 mile walk further north along the sea bank beyond the Airport boundary. It is unclear exactly where the memorial is.
