Zeebrugge raid (St. Ziua lui George) 1918 Comemorari

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

St. Raidul de George’s Day pe cârtița Zeebrugge a fost un episod cel mai inspirat din istoria recentă britanică și belgiană. În ciuda pierderii cumplite a vieții, Raidul Zeebrugge a ajutat la grăbirea sfârșitului primului război mondial.

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