Deputy Lieutenant, James Ryeland, attended the Ceremony for the 105th Anniversary of the Dover Patrol’s historic raid on Zeebrugge on St George’s Day 1918. The Ceremony took place at the Zeebrugge Bell which 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. George’s Day raid on the Zeebrugge mole was a most inspiring episode in recent British and Belgian history. Despite the terrible loss of life, the Zeebrugge Raid helped to hasten the end of the First World War. Thank you to Dover Town Council for organising this important memorial event.
