Deal Bomb 26th Anniversary

It was a privilege to attend the 26th anniversary concert to commemorate the victims of the IRA bombing of Deal Barracks in 1989.

It was a fantastic concert and a fitting tribute to those marine bandsmen who were killed by this hideous attack. Tragically, many of its victims were only in their teens.

I really enjoyed the music from the Royal Marines Bands and the moving rededication ceremony. So many residents turned out to pay their respects. They always welcome back the bandsmen and remember their sacrifice.

The bomb deeply affected our community. We will never forget what happened and continue to honour the victims' memory.

Good to see you supporting this event Charlie. Our brave forces do a lot of work to keep the country safe to give us the freedom that we have today. As the adverts say "BRITISH SOLDIER BE THE BEST"
