Merchant Seamen WW2 - Sydney Nova Scotia Memorial

By VincentChristopher
One from two years ago whilst we visited up the east side of North America and took a stay in Sydney Nova Scotia Canada.
Came across this memorial in Sydney harbour and gave me some reflective time on my late father.
Dad served in the Merchant Navy during the war on Atlantic Convoys in the early part and then assigned , as a Merchant Seaman , to the Royal Fleet Aux undertaking part on North Africa & Sicily support landings.
For me this memorial made such an impact on me and the plight of seamen as they faced the enemy and the cold waters of Canada's Coast and further afield on a sinking of a ship.

I think the artist has capture the toil very well

Hope you like

The action tells the story and is so well portrayed. An amazing work of art that most people would empathize with, and I like the way the "water" blends so well with the real water behind it.
