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

Cycling near Tonbridge.
« Reply #1 on: October 05, 2017, 22:59:05 »
While cycling from Chatham to Tonbridge , I looked up then I saw seven flying bombs in the sky,
at one time, all directed towards London. One was coming my way, then I heard the motor stop,
 I froze for a minute, I threw the bike on the grass, then myself. As it hit the ground and blew up a quarter of a mile in FRONT of me. I never got to Tonbridge. I found out later, there were several sites in that part of France, launching them. This was 1944/45, near Tonbridge.
