The forthcoming centenary of the commencement of the two world wars provides a timely opportunity to readdress and reaffirm the memorialisation of the personal sacrifice made by millions in the defence of the British Isles during the course of the two World Wars.

The proposed site for the National War Memorial will be dedicated to the casualties of the British Commonwealth from 1914-1945. The goal of the project is to have the memorial in place for an opening on 4th August 2014, the centenary of the outbreak of World War 1.

The proposed site for the National War Memorial is the area surrounding Drop Redoubt, an abandoned Victorian Artillery fortification sited above the White Cliffs over looking Dover and the English Channel.For centuries Dover has been seen as the “Lock and Key of the Kingdom” a symbolic bastion of the defence against aggression.

The creation of the National War Memorial will be a single great gesture detailing the names of the 1.7 million individuals who made the ultimate sacrifice during the two World Wars. The creation of this memorial will have an immediate personal resonance to every family of the British Isles and those of every commonwealth.
