Zeebrugge Raid (セント. ジョージの日) 1918 Commemorations

Dover Town Council will remember the 104 Anniversary of the Dover Patrol’s heroic and historic raid on Zeebrugge on St George’s Day 1918 on Saturday 23RD 4月 2022.

There will be one service, inclusive of 2-minute silence and wreath laying, to be held at 12 midday at the People of Dover’s War Memorial, Bigginストリート, ドーバー. The Town Mayor of Dover, Cllr Gordon Cowan will begin the commemorations by sounding 8 rings on the Zeebrugge Bell, which is located at the nearby Dover Town Hall. The Bell was a gift of thanks from the King of Belgium in recognition of the sacrifice of British servicemen, many of whom are buried in St James Cemetery.

セント. ゼーブルッヘのほくろに対するジョージの日の襲撃は、最近のイギリスとベルギーの歴史の中で最も刺激的なエピソードでした. ひどい人命の損失にもかかわらず, ゼーブルッヘ襲撃は、第一次世界大戦の終わりを早めるために役立ちました.

As in previous years, residents of Dover and other members of the public are very welcome to attend.
