Above are the preliminary drafts for the four panel designs hung in the Conference Suite.

Panel 2: This design acknowledges the women that served in the Women’s Royal Navy Service.
Panel 3: In the early 1930’s the Fairey Swordfish, a biplane torpedo bomber would have been a regular sight in the skies above the Daedalus base.
Panel 4: The base is also home to the Hovercraft Museum - This design is based on the military hovercraft BH-7 Wellington which was tested and housed here.
