You have to squint a bit to see it. There's a better picture shown here:

It says "The Angel Strood" on the picture, so I reckon that's pretty conclusive!

Sorry I did not look at that.

I assumed it was the old Whitbread sign for the Angel in Strood (corner of North Street and High Street)

Sorry I did not look at that.

" I'm intrigued at your Inn Sign. It looks a little like, but not the same as, the one at Malling in the 50's that was of a saint, hands held up & eyes to the sky, with a circle above around which were a couple of Spitfires or? "


Could this be the Inn sign for the The Angel at Addington?

Dave,

I think the pub you are referring to is The Startled Saint.

I too had a birthday greeting for the 26th.  Was very pleasantly surprised!!!   
What a lovely surprise to hear from the Forum and thank you for your wishes.
Came back from Morecombe and the Lakes and stopped off for a birthday afternoon tea at the iconic deco Midland Hotel at Morecombe.
Do hope the Forum continues.

best wishes Ann
     Ann, I don't know what is going on for it wouldn't let me reply, so I'm trying this? Altho' the last communication from Kyn was to say that the Forum is temp. open Dec.18th, it seems to have been extended, altho' very few are using it now- maybe they don't know? Possibly that Birthday greeting to us was an auto cue?  I'm intrigued at your Inn Sign. It looks a little like, but not the same as, the one at Malling in the 50's that was of a saint, hands held up & eyes to the sky, with a circle above around which were a couple of Spitfires or?

Dave, You are correct, he is 90. Colin ages much better than me, for he is very aux fait with computing.

m. I wonder whether I am the oldest? or are there others who can remember Gillingham, etc. prior to & during WW2?

I have a feeling that CDP may be a little older, Dave.

It would seem that some part of the KHF is working, as I recently was very pleased to  receive a Happy Birthday ( on my 89th) greeting from Kyn & The Team. I wonder whether I am the oldest? or are there others who can remember Gillingham, etc. prior to & during WW2?
