About the memorial: Commemorates the young royal navy officer who lost his life when a german submarine U-559 that had been forced to the surface and scuppered by its german crew, sank whilst he and a naval rating were recovering a german naval 4 rotor enigma machine and code books. A third naval rating was rescued with the recovered enigma machine and code books which then enabled the codebreakers at Bletchley Park to break the german naval codes, thus enabling the allied naval forces to go on the offensive against the german U-Boat packs harassing the supply convoys .
