At 11.00am on Sunday 8 November 2015, 97 years on from the signing of the Armistice in 1918, Dover will remember all the servicemen and women who have given their lives in the service of their country.

 

A parade of standards, veterans and other organisations will assemble outside Marks & Spencer in Biggin Street at 10.30am and march to the War Memorial in front of the Maison Dieu House where two minutes silence will be observed at 11.00am.

 

This year we are especially pleased to have the new White Cliffs Branch of the Royal British Legion parading its new standard. At the end of the Memorial Service conducted by the Honorary Chaplain, Reverend John Walker the parade will march back through the town to the Market Square. Councillor Chris Precious, the Right Worshipful Town Mayor of Dover, will take the salute at St. Mary’s Church.

 

Service sheets will be available to members of the public; Priory Road will be closed temporarily from the roundabout to the Ladywell traffic lights while the service is in progress.
