Memorial monument, inaugurated in Mykines

In the island of Mykines, there is this memorial monument, which was built, to remember the fallen people of the island. On the plaque, there are 37 names. 27 of these, are people, lost at sea, and 10, who are been in accidents, in the mountains of the island.

Yesterday (Aug. 3), the monument, which was built for the first time, in the 1930's, was inaugurated. This because, it's been fully restored last year, and now, the plaques have been renewed.

I helped in the restoration of this monument.

Pictures from the event are here.

There was flight accident on Mykines in 1970. Eight of the 34 passengers lost their lives. Are their names on the memorial monuments?

Yes, I did.

It's embarrasing, but I don't know for sure, but I don't think their names are on there.

I think, there is a plate with their names in Mykines church.
