Step Short is the command given to soldiers as they marched downhill to Folkestone harbour from their camps on The Leas, to embark on ships to France during WW1... for The Western Front.
It is now known as the Road of Remembrance.
Folkestone Remembers, and in 2010 new MP Damian Collins and Chairman of Step Short addressed the March from the harbour. Red and White balloons were released to commemorate the memory of troops, many of whom never returned and now rest in peace in France.
