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

Thats what I saw in the Saucer at Hempstead, in a frame on the wall.

Sadly no. It was in a frame hanging up in the recently refurbished Flying Saucer pub in Hempstead. The only place I think it could have been was on the site now occupied by James Street Flats.

No M'lud but will further my inquiries in to the said matter.  I'll ask on the Medway History part of Facebook, have you a copy of the advert?

I saw a reproduction poster advertising a J. Collins, Purveyor of Pure Milk, James St. Dairy, Gillingham. Do any of m'learned friends know anything of this?
