A poignant memorial to the sailors who fell during a dramatic First World War raid has been erected on the white cliffs of Dover.
The memorial, featuring the outline of WWI Tommies forms part of the There But Not There charity which aims to commemorate those who served, educate others about their sacrifice and heal others who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress disorder.
The perspex memorials were inspired by a photograph by Horace Nicholls, who was the Home Front Official Photographer during the war.
The raid in April 1918 was launched by the Dover Patrol and was designed to block access to the Belgian port to prevent German U-Boats from entering the English Channel.
On April 23, 1918 the daring raid was launched to block German submarines using the ports of Zeebrugge and Ostend.
The Royal Navy and Royal Marines planned to block the main channel in Zeebrugge by sinking three obsolete ships and destroying shore batteries.
The plan was originally mooted by First Sea Lord Sir John Jellicoe in 1917, although he was sacked as a result of his reluctance to advocate a convoy system.
Despite his removal, the navy continued with his plan to attack the heavily fortified port.
The Royal Navy sent 75 ships, including several that were due to be sacrificed to block the port, as part of the raid.
HMS Vindictive was tasked with landing 200 Royal Marines at the entrance of the Bruges Canal in Zeebrugge to destroy the shore batteries.
Unfortunately for the raiders, the wind shifted and blew away a smokescreen allowing the German defenders to target the sacrificial vessel.
