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

This was Kagohl lll's first night attack against England, with the main attack directed against Chatham. One of the four Gothas taking part, perhaps with engine trouble, dropped its bombs over Margate, Northdown and the Reading Street Road area. Apart from broken windows little damage was done. On the return flight from Chatham a bomb was dropped over Callis Court, as shown on the map posted by Kyn. It failed to explode.

The photo posted by Conan shows damage inflicted on Surrey Road on the following night, 4/5 September 1917.
Perhaps the photo could be reposted here?

I don't know whether this photo was one of the ones that kyn posted and was lost to photo bucket`s greed. If you look carefully the neighbouring property has lost the tiles from the roof. I wonder whether the present owners know this bit of history about their property?



and the houses today
