New flags for Dagenham War Memorials

Aug 22, 2016

Over the past few weeks many residents may have noticed that the Union Jack has been missing from both the Dagenham Heathway War Memorial at the corner of Church Elm Lane, and the Dagenham Village War Memorial by Dagenham Parish Church.

The flags at both sites are normally replaced every two years in November prior to Remembrance Day to prevent them appearing too tattered during the service. However earlier this year it was noticed that the new flags were becoming quite worn a year ahead of scheduled replacement.

War Memorial outrage in Rainham

August 4th marked the 100th anniversary of the day Britain entered the First World War. Across the country people came together to remember the fallen men and women who fought from 4th August 1914 – 11th November 1918 in one of the most costly conflicts in history. Over 800,000 lives were lost, many coming from Dagenham and Rainham.
