Memorial event for HMS "Dragon" on the eve of the Remembrance Day (17/11/2009)

I've recently noticed this on the British Embassy in Riga website. The website also contains  photographs of the ceremony itself.

"Today we salute and honour bravery. The bravery of those men who died in the defence of the freedom and integrity of an independent Latvia. Not only sons of Latvia but also foreign friends who made common cause with them - including from Britain and France. We remember them all." 

Deputy Head of Mission, Daniel Grzenda 

Thank you to Yury Melkonov for this photograph.
