The Dunkirk Memorial stands at the entrance to the British War Graves Section of Dunkirk Town Cemetery. The artistic memorial is a giant etched glass window by John Hutton.
Hutton was asked by Philip Hepworth of the Imperial Graves Commission to design a window. The design shows not only the evacuation from the beaches but also the aerial bombardment and fighting in the sky and at sea. The memorial window was unveiled by Queen Elizabeth II in 1957
