battle of britain lace panel

In Sheerness, visitors have the opportunity to see The Battle of Britain Commemorative Lace Panel, in the Healthy Living Centre. The lace panel was produced by the Nottingham lace-making firm of Dobson & Browne Ltd between 1942 and 1946 "to perpetuate this glorious epic in our history, and as a tribute to those who gallantly saved this island". Approximately 25-30 of these panels were made, and Swale is lucky enough to have one of them on public display.
