News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Gold Medal had a shop in Rochester High Street, same side as the War Memorial, Strood end. Only purchased one thing from them, never again. Paid a deposit on the article, went to collect it the next day and had to pay the full HP price, a difference of four pounds, my take home pay was seven pounds a week then. Yes, I was young and naive then, but it taught me a good life skill, regarding trust.

Anyone heard of them? Left Chatham in the 50s to set up in Higham.
