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

1907 Chatham Siege Operations - A night attack on Fort Bridgewoods

I found this account of one of the local 1907 siege operations. This was a night attack on Fort Bridgewoods. There's also a small mention of Fort Luton where a cadet battalion made a 'feint attack' on the fort as a diversion to try and get the defenders attention away from Fort Bridgewoods.
