News: The modern name of Kent is derived from the Brythonic word kantos meaning "rim" or "border", or possibly from a homonymous word kanto "horn, hook"

Shorncliffe Camp
« Reply #1 on: February 06, 2011, 18:13:02 »
During the First World War thousands of soldiers came to Shorncliffe and Hythe camp's to train before sailing to France and the Western Front.
A short distance from Shorncliffe camp, low down in the woods off the lower part of Horn Street in Sandgate(which has been recently cleared), is a system of training trenches and brick bays, recruits used to practise on/in before being shipped to France and Belgium.

I do not suffer from stress but I am a carrier!!
