Dick,

Many thanks. Your post contained some new information and the photo is excellent ... much better than the one I saw in our local newspaper of 1916.

Once again, many thanks.

Mick,

The Wakeley family "owned" Rainham in the late 19th / early 20th century. William Street, Henry Street were named after the Christian names of JES Wakeley's grandfather. There was a Martha Wakeley Road (or something similar) at one point as well although it has since been renamed something else.

When did you have in mind for a beer and I will check the diary. I guess you would like a report on Verdun and Cambrai?
