HRH The Duke of Kent visited the County on 16 November and was welcomed at The Battle of Britain Memorial and Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway.

Whilst at The Battle of Britain Memorial, he was briefed on the Memorial and the work they are doing and viewed the short film, The Scramble Experience. He met with staff and volunteers and visited the Geoffrey Page Centre and the Cockpit Cafe. The Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadet, Cadet Warrant Officer Elie Summers, was presented to The Duke before HRH was invited to lay a wreath at the Memorial.

HRH then visited the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway where he viewed the Model Railway Exhbition. He then had the opportunity to board the engine, Winston Churchill and embarked on a short journey before returning to the station where he viewed the workshops to learn more about the work being undertaken there. The Duke was able to have a look at the newly opened Heritage Centre before unveiling the plaque on the Locomotive, Winston Churchill.

It was an excellent day, and we were so pleased to welcome His Royal Highness to Kent.
