Channel Dash Anniversary 12 February 2022
80 years ago, brave airmen took off from RAF Manston as part of Operation Fuller to attack German battleships as they dashed through the English Channel towards their home port.
This memorial occasion was very special, as it was the last of its kind. Civic and military dignities were there in abundance.
To emphasise the connections between Operation Fuller and the East of Kent, the local MP, Mrs Natalie Elphicke, was photographed with the Chair of Dover District Council, Cllr Mike Conolly, the Mayor of Dover, Cllr Gordon Cowan, and the Mayor of Deal, Cllr Chris Turner.
