It was a beautiful ceremony. We'd like to thank very much the superb association standard bearers - the Royal Air Force, Burma Star, Royal Tank Regiment, Merchant Navy, Royal Engineers, Queen's Own Buffs, and two from the Royal British Legion.

And finally - the unsung star backstage. Here's master stonemason Ivor Spencer, in his workshop at Spencer and Cleverley's, who created the new memorial.

So very many people came together, to remember those we lost from our town. So many people helped, advised, supported, and worked hard behind the scenes. Dover does not forget those we mourned, Dovorians still have that warm-hearted and proud sense of community, forged in the darkest times. Thank you to you all.
