SOLD AS SCRAP IRON
Folkestone War Souvenirs
London, Wednesday:- (7 April 1937) Deciding to sell the town's war souvenirs as scrap iron, Folkestone Council accepted 22/6 per ton for a British tank, a field gun and a German howitzer, which was presented to it by the National War Savings Committee in recognition of the town's support of the war loans.
The "News Chronicle," in a leader, says: "So memorials of the war to end war, set up so proudly, now go back into the melting pot to help in the preparations for the next war."
