Reference to the SS Richard Montgomery on Sheerness seafront
Reference to the SS Richard Montgomery on Sheerness seafront
These words work their way up successive steps on the seafront at Sheerness. The wording on this step continues from the next one down and says 'is common knowledge but whisper to yourself' and refers to the SS Richard Montgomery, wrecked two miles offshore here and still loaded with explosives. The top of its masts, surrounded by warning buoys, can be clearly seen from the seafront here. If it went up estimates say that damage in Sheerness and Southend would be enormous - see LinkExternal link
