This postcard was written in 1910 but shows what the Naval Barracks at Chatham/Gillingham would have looked like. The Barracks were positioned on the Great Lines between Chatham and Gillingham so was often referred to under both towns.

314GIL - Naval Barracks (Front & Back)

The Transcribed text reads:

‘Many happy returns of the day, Stuart.’

‘Mr W Bean, 5 St Catherines, Place, Dover’
