Two buglers from the Royal Marines band in Portsmouth played an emotional “Last Post” in a moving and passionate service at the Channel Dash Memorial Trust monument alongside Ramsgate’s Royal Harbour to commemorate the 75th anniversary of this military action today (February 12).


The service was attended by representatives of the armed forces led by The Admiral of the Fleet, the Lord Boyce. The Mayors of Ramsgate, Broadstairs and Margate represented their respective communities with Ramsgate Mayor Trevor Shonk thanking the local public for braving the elements and coming out in such vast numbers.
