Dover Patrol Memorial

The Dover Patrol was a discrete unit of the Royal Navy based at Dover and Dunkirk for the duration of the First World War.

A memorial situated at the end of Granville Road, at Leathercote Point at the top of the White Cliffs of Dover, was unveiled in 1921, and commemorates almost 2000 lost over the war.

The obelisk memorial marks the point of the last bomb dropped at the end of World War I. It is now in National Trust land, and is Grade II listed.

War Memorials

War memorials were mainly constructed after WWI to commemorate the troops who gave their lives in the war. Many were then updated after WWII. Some war memorials date back to the Boer War. Almost every town and village in Britain has a War Memorial. They take many forms, the commonest being an obelisk, a cross or statue of a soldier. Some commemorate the inhabitants of a place, some are for schools and others are for companies or Military groupings.
Many memorials are grade II listed, 61 are II* listed, LinkExternal link*_listed_war_memorials_in_England
