In August 2014 on the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War - the conflict that survivors hope would be "The War to End All Wars" a memorial will be opened at Western Heights on the white cliffs that encompass the historic port of Dover.
It will commemorate the 1.7 million men and women of the armed forces, merchant marine and civilians who died in both the First World War and the Second - that followed just over twenty years later.
It is fitting that Dover should be the setting - a port from which men and women went to war, that was the entry port for refugees fleeing Nazi persecution and a community that was in the front line from 1940 to1944, shelled and bombed by German forces based in Occupied France.
We owe a debt of gratitude to the men and women of our armed forces who have given their youth and sometimes their lives to guarantee our liberty
We at Spirit of Remembrance remember their sacrifice and are therefore are proud to be associated with the National War Memorial that fittingly will be sited at Dover
