New National WW1 and WW2 memorial proposed in Dover

Plans have recently been unveiled to create a new national war memorial in Dover.  The proposed memorial would stand in Drop Redoubt, a disused Napoleonic Fort on Dover’s Western Heights. 

It would include a series of free-standing stone walls listing all those from the UK and Commonwealth countries who died in the First and Second world wars – an incredible 1.7 million names, making it unique in this country and probably the world.

If successful, the plan is to open the memorial by 2014, the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War.
