The only houses I'm aware of in Prince Arthur Road were a couple of what appeared to be 50's-built houses on the corner of Khyber Road and Prince Arthur Road. They were used as Army housing and at one point, housed a small Royal Military Police station. They were demolished to make room for the new college buildings.

Thanks for posting the link to the BBC Peoples War. I had forgotten what a priceless web site it is.
Alas I can shed no light on "16 Prince Arthur Road", but I can thank you for the web address.

Found this snippet from an interview while browsing The BBC peoples War site.
Sounds as if there was a house with tunnels under. Google maps puts in the area of the Museum and Bowls Cub. Any one know any more ?

Quote transcript.
"I worked in the tunnel three nights a week taking all the messages, because it was coastal command. I was taking the messages of aircraft brought down. Next to my office was the Ops. Room and I absolutely dreaded going in there because so many of the pilots had lost arms, legs or an eye and see these poor souls. That was in Gillingham in 16 Prince Arthur Road.

NC: I had no idea that that was there.

MW?: They don’t advertise the fact that its there, number 16. We have tried to get access to the tunnel, up at the Royal Aeronautical Society in Medway, and have been refused access.
