The Dover Patrol memorial
The Dover Patrol memorial
The Dover Patrol was a Royal Navy command, based at Dover and Dunkirk for the duration of the First World War. Its primary task was to prevent enemy German shipping, paticularly submarines, from using the English Channel as a route to the Atlantic Ocean. After the war, a fund was set up to erect a memorial to the Dover Patrol. In July 1921, this memorial near St Margaret's Bay was unveiled. Similar memorial obelisks stand at Cap Blanc Nez on the French Coast and at Fort Hamilton, overlooking New York Harbour.
