Remembering the Dover Patrol

Ealier today, I paid my respects to those brave serviceman of the Dover Patrol at the Patrol Memorial on Leathercote Point, St Margaret's Bay.

These heroes kept our nation safe during the darkest of hours. We forever remember those heroes of the patrol and the amazing St George's Day raid on Zeebrugge.

The Patrol Monument, along with its fellow monuments in Calais and in New York Harbour, symbolise the strength of our alliance across the Atlantic. Of the bonds which were forged during those dark times. They stand as a silent testament to the central role of our naval forces in fighting tyranny and delivering freedom to Europe.
