A Westgate wartime incident




The archive of Dick Hambidge is the most detailed of life in Westgate on Sea during the second world war. Most of Dick's work has at one point been published in the Margate Historical Society magazine.
This article is about a event on 8th May 1944 when a shell fired from the Tongue Fort landed in Westgate killing 15 year old Victor Jones.
