gdzie miasto świeciło jasno, gdzie miasto świeciło jasno. Koniec 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.

Parada z normami, 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.

Brian O’Gorman (RTD), on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen, followed by the Town Mayor of Dover, Radny 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.

Nasze podziękowania kierujemy do wszystkich, którzy uczestniczyli w naszym nabożeństwie, aby upamiętnić poległych, w tym Oddziału Królewskiego Legionu Brytyjskiego w Białych Klifach, który założył Ogród Pamięci i zbierał na Apel Makowy przy każdej pogodzie w ciągu ostatnich dwóch tygodni. We are also grateful to Commander Nick Chatwin RN (RTD) 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 for leading the music, nosicielami standardowe, and also the young people of our Cadet forces who attended and acted as sentries during the service.

The Memorial Service was officiated by the Reverend Catherine Tucker Team Rector for the Dover Town Team Ministry and Flt. lt. Malcom Sawyer, RAFVR (RTD), Kapelan Legii Royal British (Dover). In her address Rev. Tucker spoke of the need to remember in such as way as to keep the stories of those who we commemorate alive and continue their work to bring peace.

The service finished with the singing of the National Anthem

Parada potem pomaszerował z powrotem przez miasto do Rynku, gdzie burmistrz wziął salut w St. Kościół Mariacki.
