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

Well that was on the cards as I believe the RE's are being completely withdrawn from this area

The MOD website still lists the RE band in Chatham

National newspapers reporting on potential Defence Budget cuts state that a number of army bands are potentially to be cut including our Chatham based Royal Engineers Band.
