Remembering bandsmen killed by IRA

THIRTEEN years on, families and friends of the 11 Royal Marines Bandsmen who died in the IRA bombing remembered them in a service at the remembrance garden in Deal's North Barracks.

The service began at 8.24am, the exact time the explosion ripped through the rest room on September 22 1989. It was led by the Rev Bill Nuttall, the Royal British Legion Downs Branch padre.

More than 100 people gathered in the garden, the biggest crowd ever for the annual memorial service.
