    Dan's Dock did not originally belong to the CPC but belonged to Sampson Dan who had a Brickworks, there is a Pottery shown on 1908 OS maps with a Tramway from it to the dock. The long building stands where the Pottery once was and may have been part of it, Uplees station was also built near there and the building could have been used by the Light RailwayDan'sDockAno1.jpg AnotA.jpg

    Frederick Martin Hale became F. Marten Hale, Martin was his Mother's maiden name and at some point he changed it, he signed his (2nd) Marriage Certificate Marten. I have been unable to find out what happened to his first Wife but Census records show they had no Children.

    I have the same Photograph labelled 1921 Memorial Service rather than the Tank enquiry, I don't know which is correct so I will keep an open mind. William Mills was Knighted but Hale was not, possibly due to Hale using the courts to protect his many patents while Mills was reportedly much more relaxed about his.

    I was recently able to visit the Faversham Cemetery to see the mass grave. The names on the two memorials confirm that there were 108 burials with the majority in the mass grave but with over 30 buried elsewhere.

    Here's a photo of the sadly neglected memorial which needs a good weeding, and the other memorial. The stonework is in good condition as is the separate stone which names those buried elsewhere.

    Hope this is of interest.
