Air Mechanic 2nd Class Lewis Cooke was born in 1920, the son of John and Elizabeth Cooke.  Lewis joined the Royal Navy and served on H.M.S. Glorious. He was 20 years of age when on 8 June 1940, the aircraft carrier was caught and sunk in the Norwegian Sea by the German battle cruisers Scharnhorst and Gneisenau. Glorious had been helping evacuate RAF aircraft in the Norwegian Campaign.

The principal base of the Fleet Air Arm, Lee-on-the-Solent, Hampshire, was chosen as the site for the memorial to almost 2,000 men of that service who died during the Second World War and who have no known grave.  He is also remembered on the Wales Square memorial.
