Shown in these pictures is The Royal Naval Barracks from a general view and The Barracks from The Terrace and Men’s Quarters view. These pictures were taken in 1920 but would have been what the Barracks looked like during the war. Chatham was one of The Royal Navy’s three manning ports and was a hub of naval activity with the reserves and a number of operational ships being based there. The Royal Naval Barracks played a large role in housing those who manned many of these ships.
