Exhibition – Reverend David Railton M.C.

The Friends of St Mary’s and St Eanswythe’s and Folkestone Museum are proud to present ‘Reverend David Railton M.C.’ This moving exhibition is available to visit at Folkestone Museum from the 17th October 2020 and reflects on Railton’s experiences of the First World War which lead to his idea for the Grave of the Unknown Warrior.

The iconic image of the Tomb has been recreated, with the permission of Westminster Abbey and will be on display at Folkestone Museum, along with a recording of some of his private letters, courtesy of his family and a film on loan from the Imperial War Museum.
