Excerpt from Folkestone During the War: A Record of the Town's Life and Work This volume is an evidence of local patriotism. It was made possible by the public spirit of the writers and publishers, to whom the Editor expresses his indebtedness. No town in England has a record of war work comparable with that of Folkestone. The coast-line from Dover to Hythe forms a strategic point of vital importance. It was t only the nearest to the fighting line, but the key-position to England. Looking back, it is wonderful to observe how little it suffered and how bly it bore the strain of continual anxiety.
