Sorry, I should have said " than you smiffy". Dave. And, having read a bit more, maybe Whitbread, not Fremlyns?


Certainly a Whitbread promotion and those tin `fag cards` are quite sought after these days I believe. The only one I still have is of `Boltoph`s Bridge`, West Hythe - must put it on e-bay sometime. From what I recall the series was selective but was it nationwide or confined to the South East?

Longpockets. Many thanks, yes that was it, & the link brought it all back. When I was an Apprentice at RAFHalton, a friend, Bill Mercer's dad was the landlord of a pub in Mereworth. The Brewery produced a set of, probably 30? thin metal 2" x 21/2" of pub signs in Kent. Was it Fremlyns? Of course, he had a full set- probably a collectors item now?

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.
