Deal will never and can never forget the tragedy of 1989 when 11 innocent Marines were killed by the IRA.
Every year during the summer a fabulous programme of free open air concerts are held at the Walmer Bandstand, with the pinnacle undoubtedly being the annual Royal Marines concert where the musicians are remembered.
This year saw glorious sunshine for wonderful music provided by the Marines, and an as always moving re-dedication where the names of those who lost their lives are read out. Thousands crammed onto Walmer Green to show their support.
It was an honour to be there and lay my own floral tribute to those that were killed. Deal will always remember them.
