Μνήμης Κυριακή Υπηρεσία και Parade

Dover War Memorial

Κυριακή 14 Νοέμβριος 2021


Και ώρα 11.00 π.μ. στο Μνήμης Κυριακή Dover άνδρες, women and children gathered at the People of Dover’s War Memorial to honour the memory of all the service men and women who gave their lives in armed conflicts past and present. Πάνω από 60 wreaths were laid during the service, covering the memorial in red poppies, as a token of the Town’s thanks for the sacrifices made to secure our peace and freedom.



The Town Mayor of Dover Councillor Gordon Cowan lays a wreath.

The parade of standards, veterans and other organisations marched to the War Memorial in front of Maison Dieu House where the two minutes silence was observed with Civic Leaders. The wreath laying was led by the Deputy Lieutenant of Kent, Διάσελο. Brian O’Gorman (ΕΤΑ), on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen, followed by the Town Mayor of Dover, Σύμβουλος Gordon Cowan, the leader of Dover District Council, Cllr Trevor Bartlett, the MP for Dover and Deal Mrs Natalie Elphicke and on behalf of the Government of Flanders. Wreaths were then laid by representatives of the uniformed services and veterans associations. Everyone was welcome to pay their tribute including local organisations and the families of the fallen.

Our thanks go to all those who attended our service to remember the fallen including the White Cliffs Branch of the Royal British Legion who set out the Garden of Remembrance and collected for the Poppy Appeal in all weathers over the last two weeks. We are also grateful to Commander Nick Chatwin RN (ΕΤΑ) for reading the Exhortation and the Kohima Epitaph, Parade Marshal Mr Alan Tinker of the Dover and Deal Sea Cadets, Mr John Harknett of the Royal Green Jackets Association for playing the last post, Betteshanger Colliery Welfare Band για την ηγεσία της μουσικής, οι σημαιοφόροι, και επίσης οι νέοι των Δυνάμεων των Δόκιμων μας που παρευρέθηκαν και έδρασαν ως φρουροί κατά τη διάρκεια της λειτουργίας.

Το μνημόσυνο τελέστηκε από την Reverend Catherine Tucker Team Rector για το Dover Town Team Ministry and Flt. Lt. Μάλκομ Σόγιερ, RAFVR (ΕΤΑ), Εφημέριος στο Royal British Legion (Ντόβερ). In her address Rev. Ο Τάκερ μίλησε για την ανάγκη να θυμόμαστε με τέτοιο τρόπο ώστε να κρατάμε ζωντανές τις ιστορίες όσων μνημονεύουμε και να συνεχίσουμε το έργο τους για να φέρουμε ειρήνη.

The service finished with the singing of the National Anthem

Η παρέλαση στη συνέχεια βάδισε πίσω από την Πόλη στην πλατεία της Αγοράς, όπου ο δήμαρχος πήρε το χαιρετισμό στο St. Εκκλησία της Παναγίας.
