Folkestone, Hythe, Sandgate & Cheriton Herald - Saturday 17 November 1923

HAWKINGE MEMORIAL CROSS.
At Hawkinge on Armistice Sunday an oak cross, lately erected in the churchyard in memory of the nineteen men who fell in the Great War, was unveiled.

The cross which is of solid oak, was generously presented by Mr. H. Kettle, the cost of the base and of erection being defrayed out of the balance from the war memorial tablet already in the church.

Squad. Leader Peck, of the 25th Squadron of the Royal Air Force, now stationed at Hawkinge, performed the unveiling ceremony. A detachment of the R.A.F. sounded the Reveille.

The service of dedication which followed was conducted by the Rector (the Rev. A. R. Simpson). After the service many beautiful wreaths were placed on the memorial, including one from the officers and men of the 25th Squadron of the R.A.F.
