NOTE: A row of asterisks (*) indicates 'end of a side'. Also note that the name of a 'side' does not imply anything other than remembrance. Note also, that there is an entry for the Korean War on the 'Royal Navy' side; click that and then scroll forward. Lastly, there is an entry for the HMY Iolaire Disaster at end of Royal Air Force side.
