Dover will remember the fallen 100 years to the minute the Armistice was signed.
There will be a two minutes silence at 11am on Sunday, November 11, the exact time the First World War ended.
This is part of a wider Remembrance Sunday Service and parade organised by Dover Town Council.
A spokesman said: "Dover will remember all the servicemen and women who have given their lives in the service of their country."
A parade of standards, veterans and other organisations will assemble outside the firmer Marks & Spencer in Biggin Street at 10.30am.
This will be to march to the War Memorial in front of Maison Dieu House where the two minutes' silence will take place.
The Memorial Service will be conducted by the mayor's honorary chaplain the Rev Dr John Walmer and will be followed by the laying of wreaths.
The parade will then march back through the town to the Market Square.
Mayor Sue Jones will take the salute at St. Mary’s Church.
Priory Road will be closed from the roundabout to the Ladywell traffic lights, from approximately 10.50am, while the service is in progress.
Service sheets will be available to members of the public at the service and can also be download from the Town Council’s website at www.dovertowncouncil.gov.uk
Meanwhile the Royal British Legion Dover White Cliffs Branch will lay out the Legion’s Memorial Crosses in the Garden of Remembrance.
This is from Friday, October 26, and it will also from then receive donations in support of the 2018 Poppy Appeal.
For the centenary year of the end of the First World War a mural was unveiled in April next to the War Memorial.
In the image, commissioned by the town council, soldiers stand in the foreground, aeroplanes and ships show how warfare has developed in the past century and there are red poppies of remembrance.
