There are twin memorials on Upper Road (leading from Dover, past the castle, to St Margaret's at Cliffe). On the left is one to the Royal Flying Corps, on the right one for the Royal Artillery and the USA AAA 127th Battery. They are situated overlooking the English channel, as shown in the view below right, and near the former WWII Chain Home radar station.
