HMS Dasher memorial, Ardrossan, Ayrshire

This boat shaped flowerbed on the seafront at Ardrossan commemorates the 379 men who lost their lives on the 23rd of March 1943 when the light escort carrier HMS Dasher blew up and sank south of the wee Cumbrae in the Firth of Clyde. Due to the war there was much secrecy about the incident and even today the exact cause of the explosion is not fully understood. The wreck still lies in 131m of water where it sank and is now considered a war grave.
