|Den Helder, Netherlands, 1947|
Inaugurated on 20 June 1947. Originally only to commemorate the Dutch submariners lost at sea. The monument was built in Rotterdam, but in 1962 it was moved (Because the Submarine Service moved) to Den Helder, after the move the plaques were also re-arranged. On 4 June 1968 two bronze plaques where attached to the 'back' of the 'wall'. One plaque displays the text "Ja Het Moest" and the other plaque displays the silhouette of a sinking submarine. The two plaques at the left and right of the main 'wall' were added later and list the names of submariners that were lost while not being at sea. Most of those died in Japanese captivity.
