Channel Dash Memorial Unveiling Today at 2 pm Ramsgate harbour.

Just a timely reminder that Admiral the Lord Boyce will be unveiling this memorial today.

This memorial is to the18 young airmen who took six Fairey Swordfish torpedo bombers to attack three heavily protected German warships in the English Channel during WW2.

There will also be an HMS Raider type 2000 fast patrol at the harbour from 10.30am to take the relatives of the airmen out to sea to scatter their ashes.

  1. This is the second memorial that Lord Boyce has unveiled at Ramsgate Harbour in the last 12 months,which is great recognition for the harbour and the town. I am very grateful that Thanet District Council didn't try to get in on the act. ( probably because they weren't aware it was happening!!!!)
