The Mitre Pub in Snargate Street was hit on that day.
Our oral history project "Keep off the Beach" is interviewing living witnesses to the shelling of Dover.
This third audio clip features Robert Hearn who lived with his parents in the Mitre pub Snargate Street which was destroyed by a shell on 26th September 1944.
Happily the family survived. The pub was never rebuilt.
