Pembury remembers

The village council have organised a special evening to which all members of the congregation are invited.


David Doré’s Film “Pembury Remembers will be shown in the Baptist Church, Romford Road, on December 6th at 7.30pm. This poignant documentary includes scenes from Tyne Cot, Langemarck and the Menin Gate. There will also be interviews with relatives of Pembury men killed in action in the two World Wars. Filming of the carving of the names on the new Portland stones is included and of course highlights of the Remembrance Day Service held at the War Memorial on 11.11.18.

There will be another award-winning film by David about the sinking of the RMS Lusitania by a German submarine, the U-20 in 1915. In addition to the dreadful loss of life, this tragic event would lead to the United States entry into the Great War and the destruction of the reputation of Captain William Turner…a decent and entirely innocent man. “A Damned Dirty Business” will be the first film (about 26 mins).

Everyone is welcome and entry is £5 (Cash only) on the door in aid of the Royal British Legion.

A DVD will also be available courtesy of David Doré for £10 on the night or afterwards from Barnes Kingsnorth Estate Agents on the High Street – Cash or Cheque only.
