Launch of Memorial Arch Project

As part of our aim to restore the Road of Remembrance as a fitting tribute to the men and women who took that route to the Western Front, we have unveiled our plans for a Memorial Arch at the top of the Road. The launch took place at The Grand on 13 July and we were pleased to welcome 150 guests, including our patron, Admiral the Lord Boyce, KG, GCB, OBE, DL, Lord Warden and Admiral of the Cinque Ports. Other guests included many civic leaders, schools and supporters. Our Chariman, Damian Collins, MP, opened the event and, as well as a fascinating presentation on the Arch, we also launched a new feature on our website: the 3D films and features which can be found at the top right hand side of the Home page.

Here are some images of the proposed arch:

And do spend some time looking at the 3D features. Don’t worry, if you don’t have 3D glasses, you can opt to play the films in 2D!

As always, we would be delighted to receive feedback; simply post a comment, or email [email protected]
