Inscription.

In wartime, merchant mariners have collectively faced constant danger and heavy losses to carry vital supplies and personnel across the oceans.

These plants depict the many crossings of our mariners, with yellow symbolizing the hope of our Allies.

En temps de guerre, les marins marchands font fi d'un danger constant et de graves avaries pour transporter sur l'océan des fournitures de première nécessité et du personnel.

Ces plantes incarnent les nombreuses traversées de ces marins, le jaune symbolisant l'espoir de nos alliés.
