Bernard Kelly recalls his time in the 1950’s on the Red Sands Fort. Brian Waters chats about the early days on Radio Essex and Jerry Pitcher talks about his artists studio at the Radio City Office in Whitstable, and his time on the Knock John

There are two further features on Red Sands; a Service Visit and a look at War Time and the Radio Station Generation Plant aboard the Fort. We’ve added an interview to the Brian Tyrrell page about fishing and his time as crew on the ‘Mullard’ tender to the Red Sands Fort radio stations of the 60’s and more photographs and information have been added to Fort Fax

Locally there there’s more detail on the time bomb of the North Kent coast the ‘Richard Montgomery’ and we have a massive feature of photographs Whitstable Harbour  through the years from the 1880’s
