Underneath the Arches

The point where three bridges cross the River Medway just upriver from Rochester, Kent. The two bridges in the foreground carry the M2 motorway. The bridge in the background is for the Eurostar/High Speed Rail link from London to the Channel Tunnel.

Memorial to Field Marshall Kitchener outside Fort Amherst in Chatham, Kent.

Kitchener's face appeared on the famous World War I British Army recruiting posters. He died in 1916 whilst on the way to a diplomatic mission in Russia. His ship was sunk by a mine laid by a German U boat.
