Dartford council is to issue a commemorative medal to mark the centenary of the outbreak of World War One.
The medal will be available to Dartford households with a connection or family history related to the Great War and residents will be invited to contribute to a book of remembrance.
Dartford residents may obtain their medal in person - one per household - at the Civic Centre and Dartford Borough Museum during normal opening hours.
Dartford Leader Jeremy Kite said, “It is touching to see how much interest surrounds this year’s centenary events and the council wanted to offer a lasting memento of an event which changed the lives of so many Dartford families.
"The Dartford Borough Council Commemorative World War One medal is a simple but significant reminder of the sacrifice made by so many and I hope it will be valued by many Dartford households.”
