U.S. Navy Memorial at Gibraltarloupe
36 Parliament Lane
Gibraltar
Gibraltar
GX11 1AA

The U.S. Navy Memorial is a World War I memorial in the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar. It was built for the American Battle Monuments Commission in 1933 and inaugurated in 1937. The memorial is a masonry archway which leads to a British Commonwealth War Graves Commission Cemetery. Over the arch are two bronze seals of the United States and the Department of the Navy. This monument, constructed of the stone from the neighboring Rock of Gibraltar, commemorates the achievements of the U.S. Navy in the nearby waters and its comradeship with the British Royal Navy during World War I. Steps lead downward from the south side of the Naval Monument to the busy harbor; thus its nickname of the “American Steps.”  The inscription on the north side of the monument reads:

ERECTED BY THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA TO COMMEMORATE THE ACHIEVEMENTS AND COMRADESHIP OF THE AMERICAN AND BRITISH NAVIES IN THIS VICINITY DURING THE WORLD WAR

The U.S. Navy cooperated with the British Royal Navy and other navies in fighting the German submarine menace. Gibraltar was one of its major bases. The Navy’s Patrol Force operated here from August 1917 until after the Armistice of November 11, 1918. Its ships included cruisers, destroyers, Coast Guard cutters, and submarine chasers. The ships attacked German submarines and escorted convoys to and from ports in France and Great Britain. During July and August, 1918, the Patrol Force escorted 25 percent of all Mediterranean convoys to French ports, and 70 percent of all convoys to English ports from the vicinity of Gibraltar.

In November 1998, this monument was the site of an unveiling ceremony of a bronze plaque which commemorated the World War II Allied invasion of North Africa, Operation Torch.

Canadian Cross of Sacrificeloupe

1927
Sir Reginald Bloomfield

Original Text:

Erected by the Government of Canada in honour of the citizens of the United States who served in the Canadian Army and gave their lives in the Great War, 1914-1918.

"Few countries enjoy the bonds of goodwill and friendship that the United States and Canada share. Our common border remains the longest unguarded frontier on earth, and our nations have shared triumphs and tragedies throughout history. It was in this spirit of friendship that in 1925 Canadian Prime Minister MacKenzie King first proposed a memorial to the large number of United States citizens who enlisted in the Canadian Armed Forces, and lost their lives during World War I. Because the Canadians entered the war long before the United States, many Americans enlisted in Canada to join the fighting in Europe.

"On June 12, 1925, President Calvin Coolidge approved the request, and on Armistice Day 1927 the monument near the Memorial Amphitheater was dedicated. Designed by Canadian architect Sir Reginald Bloomfield, the monument consists of a bronze sword adorning a 24-foot gray granite cross.


"The inscription on the cross reaffirms the sentiment expressed by Prime Minister King regarding Americans who served in the Canadian Armed Forces. Following World War II and the Korean War, similar inscriptions on other faces of the monument were dedicated to the Americans who served in those conflicts."

New Hanover County World War One Memorialloupe
Wilmington

1922
J. Maxwell Miller

Sculpted by J. Maxwell Miller. Listed on the shield are those who died in World War One who came from New Hanover County, NC.

On Memorial Day, 1922, local citizens dedicated a monument to the county’s war dead. For more than 50 years, the Memorial sat at Market and 13th streets, in the median of the main thoroughfare through town, and right outside New Hanover High School. In the 1970s, as the city moved to put an overpass across the street, connecting the two parts of New Hanover High school, the Memorial was moved and placed in front of the school.

In the spring of 2014, a group of people gathered to explore the idea of restoring, cleaning, and moving the memorial to the Riverfront. The Memorial was rededicated on November 11, 2014.
