With the town being a hive of military activity, the people of Folkestone went about their business as best they could, butt wasn't just on the Western Front that death reared its ugly head. It happened in Folkestone in the Tontine Street Air Raid on 25 May 1917. Seventy-one people were killed and ninety-four were injured when German Gotha bombers attacked the town.
