Are you the relative or descendant of one of the thousands of First World War servicemen from the borough of Maidstone who gave their lives in the conflict of 1914 to 1918?
The organisers would like people to submit the names and brief details of those who made the ultimate sacrifice and who previously had lived or worked in the borough, so that their names can be read out at the service.
The event will be attended by cadets, veterans and members of the RBL, as well as many of the town’s great and good.
The Rev Andrew Royal will conduct the prayers, starting at 8pm, to be followed by the Last Post at 8.45pm.
Sir Edward famously observed: “The lamps are going out all over Europe. We shall not see them lit again in our lifetime.”
Any local families who would like their loved ones’ name included on the list to be read should email firstname.lastname@example.org
