Kent’s Desert Island Beer Labels #8

It’s back to Kent for my next selection. Although the Medway towns are only a few miles from my home town of Northfleet, we never seemed to get there much except on “Navy Days” at the Chatham dockyard when my father, an ex-Royal Navy man, would take us aboard the ships that were open to the public. Not far from the dockyard was the site of Arkcoll’s Brewery, although it had long gone by the time we made our visits in the late 1950s. Many years ago I was shown a colour photocopy of an Arkcoll’s label and the hunt was on! It took many years but eventually I obtained this superb label to shine in my Kent collection.
