Watling street

Nos. 4 and 5 Electric Lights Companies
No. 3 Works Company

Gillingham had the head quarters of Kent (Fortress) Royal Engineers at the Submarine Mining School. Companies based there included Nos. 4 and 5 Electric Lights Companies and No. 3 Works Company

Watling Street drill hall has been demolished and replaced by housing. We understand that the lost building was 1930s and it had a Royal West Kent badge above its door.

Thank you to Johnathan Saunders for the photograph
