The memorial records the names of 151 Typhoon pilots who lost their lives in Normandy during 1944, many of them in support of the D-Day landings and the subsequent Battle of Normandy. It also honours the ground crews who armed and serviced the aircraft to keep them flying The flame of remembrance links the famous Hawker Typhoon with its present- day counterpart, the Eurofighter Typhoon. A plaque in the nearby Noyers Bocage church commemorates all of the 666 Typhoon personnel who lost their lives during the war.
