Sol­diers re­store me­mo­rial

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

AF­TER years of ne­glect, a war me­mo­rial has been re­stored to its for­mer glory by Ash­ford vol­un­teer sol­diers.

A troop of 15 from the Ter­ri­to­rial Army 133 Work­shop Com­pany, Royal Elec­tri­cal and Me­chan­i­cal En­gi­neers, based at Rowcroft Bar­racks in Chart Road, spent the week­end work­ing on Len­ham ceme­tery and the me­mo­rial on the downs above.

The site marks the death of 42 REME sol­diers from Ash­ford who were killed in their work­shop by a Ger­man V2 rocket.
