The Kings Shilling

The Kings Shilling, one of my more interesting finds. During the Napoleonic wars, and you just happen be drinking in a seafront tavern at Margate and you found this silver coin in the bottom of your tankard it meant a career in the Royal Navy. I sometimes think the Tories select their councillors in the same manner. Find a pound in your pint in the Tory club and thats it mate your standing for council.
