The Dover Patrol

Travelling through north west France is a poignant experience for most at the best of times let alone today on the anniversary of D Day. In every town on the coast between Boulogne and Calais stand numerous monuments and memorials to the fallen in both WW1 and WW2. Union Jacks, Stars and Stripes, Maple leafs and Tricolours are often seeing flying side by side.

In the distance of ‘Cap Blanc Nez’ you can see an obelisk commemorating the Dover patrol who were responsible for keeping the channel free from U boats during World War One.
