Demolished 1970s

Chatham

Naval and Militarty Arms 1960s

Above photo 1960s, kindly sent by Tony Smith.

 

The Licensing Records of 1872 stated the premises held a Beer License and was owned by Charles George Vinall of 9 Buckingham Street, Strand. At the time the name given was just the "Military Arms."

As seen on the building in the picture, this one dates from 1913, so there was obviously another that predates this. Unfortunately this building was demolished along with other when the Pentagon developments took place in the 1970s.

 

Local knowledge, further pictures, and licensee information would be appreciated.

I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

All emails are answered.
