Canadian soldiers were remembered when school children put flowers on their graves at a special event in Folkestone.
It was held at Shorncliffe Military Cemetery to mark Canada Day.
The service has been held in Shepway for the past 90 years, traditionally on July 1, or the first working day afterwards, with Canada Day being a bank holiday in Canada.
Many Canadian soldiers were stationed at Shorncliffe during the First World War. The service is in commemoration of the 296 who died in combat and who are buried at the cemetery.
There was a procession from the barracks to the cemetery, led by Folkestone mayor Peter Gane.
A service was held which was also attended by civic dignitaries, councillors, military personnel and representatives from ex-service organisations.
