Deal Memorial Bandstand at Walmer
Deal Memorial Bandstand at Walmer
On 22nd September 1989 the Provisional IRA exploded a time bomb at the Royal Marines School of Music. Eleven musicians were killed. The full story can be seen here - LinkExternal link

This memorial bandstand was constructed at Walmer Green to the memory of those who "only ever wanted to play music". It has the names of the eleven who lost their lives around the base.

The surviving barracks at Deal were converted into flats when the base was decommissioned in 1996, and the School of Music is once again based in Portsmouth from where it had moved to Deal in 1950. The white clock tower in the distance, just to the left of the bandstand, was where the barracks was located. For a closer photograph see Link
