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.”

Tunnel behind the Naval Barracks Chatham, under Khyber Pass.

I was a telegram boy age 14, when I delivered telegrams to the Fleet Mail Office, in the Dockyard.
The naval writer said ` not this one, the Commander is in the tunnel `. I asked him `where` that was,
and he directed me to the Naval Barracks. Asking again, I was shown the entrance behind one of the blocks on the main road. I entered this well lit tunnel, found the Commander, `no answer` he said, then I came out. I don`t remember any passage ways off the main tunnel, but there could have been.
This was in 1941. The commander did not `tip` me.  Usually three pence or sixpence.
