Zeebrugge Raid (St. Dia de George) 1918 Comemorações

Dover Town Council will remember the 104º Anniversary of the Dover Patrol’s heroic and historic raid on Zeebrugge on St George’s Day 1918 on Saturday 23rd abril 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 Rua, 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, many of whom are buried in St James Cemetery.

The St. A invasão do dia de George na toupeira Zeebrugge foi um episódio mais inspirador da história britânica e belga recente. Apesar da terrível perda de vidas, o Zeebrugge Raid ajudou a acelerar o fim da Primeira Guerra Mundial.

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