The Memorial Room
The Memorial Room is inside the Lodge and features displays on the victims, remembering them and the aftermath of the bombing. The goal of the memorial room is to further honor the lives lost that day and to educate on the vast impact, not Pan Am Flight 103 had but also the impact the Lodge had and has on loved ones as well as the local community.
Central to the Memorial room at Dryfesdale Lodge is the is the Lockerbie memorial quilt. Created to mark the 20th anniversary of the air disaster, the tree has 259 leaves to represent those aboard Pan Am 103 and there are 11 pebbles on the bank of the river in remembrance of the local residents who died on December 21st 1988.
The Memorial Room also contains a display on the events and aftermath of the air disaster, a book of remembrance ‘On Eagles’ Wings’ with pages dedicated to each of the victims, and a small reference library which can be accessed upon request. The book was compiled by Georgia Nucci, whose son, Christopher Jones was aboard the flight. The information for the book was gathered either through obituaries or through the families.
In recent years we have also created information boards on the victims that will be displayed as well.
