There is a Methodist Church across the road, just into East Street, and it has crosses on the top of the gables. It all still fits :)

East street in Chatham do you mean ?

A clearer view of the modern facade seventy odd years later...

The three to the left? The centre one now houses an ATM but the old picture has three identical windows.

I'm getting the "pillars" but not the 3 WW2 windows vs the 2 current ones...

No definitely Tonbridge, junction of High Street and Castle street.

Yes, its certainly Tonbridge, it even has the curved pavement outside. A clear view of the bank can be seen here https://www.pressreader.com/uk/kent-messenger-maidstone/20111007/282299611919851 , but no sign of what was next door.

One query about dating it as 1939 - 1945 though is the lack of any blast protection on the windows, so maybe a post war austerity queue.

Once again, the windows are a different design.

Having investigated further, I believe it may be the Tonbridge branch.
