FOLKESTONE IN THE GREAT WAR
by Stephen Wynn

Folkestone was one of the most important British towns during the First World War. Between 1914 and 1919 an estimated 10 million troops and nurses departed Through its harbour for the battlefields of the Western Front. Because of its geographical location on the south coast, the town was heavily involved in the course of the war. Shorncliffe camp saw the arrival of Canadian soldiers who came to practice in its purpose-built trenches, and cavalry units who put their horses through their paces. With the town being a hive of military activity, the people of Folkestone went about their business as best they could, butt wasn't just on the Western Front that death reared its ugly head. It happened in Folkestone in the Tontine Street Air Raid on 25 May 1917. Seventy-one people were killed and ninety-four were injured when German Gotha bombers attacked the town. This book is a poignant testimony to those people as well as the men who didn't make it back
