The town of Gillingham in Kent lies in the South of England at the mouth of the River Medway estuary. A large part of the historic Chatham Dockyard occupied parts of Gillingham, a dockyard that dates back to Queen Elizabeth I and England’s Golden Age of Discovery.
The dockyard wasn’t closed until 1984, when Britain’s shipbuilding industry had all but been destroyed by world-wide economic downturn, poor governmental decision making and lack of investment. Today Rochester, Chatham, Gillingham and all the historic Cinque Ports have seen a revival thanks to European development funding and tourism. The Royal Engineers Museum, a must-see for anyone interested in military engineering history, is also based in Gillingham and Chatham Dockyard is eventually to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as it holds so much information on maritime development that has made shipping what it is today.
Since the Cinque Ports and Chatham Dockyard with it have always had a navy presence of some kind or other, Gillingham has not been without incidence. Throughout history the town was a target for foreign invasion and warfare. While Gillingham’s population expected Royal Marines to be injured or even killed in the line of duty, when defending their country, it was a huge shock when in 1951 a bus accident involved 24 Royal Marine cadets of tender ages. The boys, aged between 10 and 13, perished in the road accident.
