Dover pilsētas dome būs atcerēties 104th Anniversary of the Dover Patrol’s heroic and historic raid on Zeebrugge on St George’s Day 1918 on Saturday 23rd Aprīlis 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 Street, Dover. 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, daudzi no kuriem ir aprakti St James kapos.

Sv. George’s Day raid on the Zeebrugge mole was a most inspiring episode recent British and Belgian history. Neskatoties uz šausmīgo dzīvību zaudēšanu, Zēbriges reids palīdzēja paātrināt Pirmā pasaules kara beigas.

Tāpat kā iepriekšējos gados, residents of Dover and other members of the public are very welcome to attend.
