Council bosses have organised a ceremony to mark the centenary of a First World War tank battle.
The event, to be held at Ashford's Mark IV tank in New Street, will remember the Battle of Cambrai which was the first major tank offensive of the war.
Wreaths will be laid during the service, which will be held at 11am on Friday, November 17.
Cllr Mike Bennett, said: “It is important Ashford Borough Council marks this significant event to remember those who bravely gave their lives during the First World War.
“The Mark IV tank is a significant part of Ashford’s rich history and we are proud to have such a historic relic in the heart of the town centre.
"From more than 1,000 tanks built for combat during WWI, it is the last of its kind to be on public outdoor display in a town, so it seems only fitting the commemoration service takes place there.
“We welcome the public to join us for the memorial service, and learn more about the impact of the First World War from the local history organisations and groups who will be there on the day.”
