Lerwick: memorial on Victoria Quay
This memorial stands at the entrance to the Victoria Pier, and depicts a cup running over - see HU4741 : Lerwick: detail of the Diana memorial.

Across the top is written "God is Faithful - 1 Cor. 1 v.9."

Below is the explanation of the memorial's existence:
"In memory of the providential return of the s. whaler "Diana" of Hull, 1866-67.
Captain - late John Gravill, Surgeon - late Charles Edward Smith"
followed by a further biblical quotation.
