chatham Armoury

The Chatham Armoury was constructed in 1905 as a result of reform and expansion of the volunteer militia. The first unit to occupy the Armoury was the 24th Kent Regiment that was formed in 1901. It was the centre for local recruitment and training for the 186th Kent Overseas Battalion, CE.F. during the First World War, 1914-1918. In 1920 the Armoury became the home of the renamed Kent Regiment and, in 1936, the Kent Regiment, Machine Gun. During the Second World War, 1939-1945, it was the centre of military activity for the 1st Battalion, CASF, and the 2nd Battalion, NPAM, of the Kent Regiment.
The building continued to be occupied by the Kent Regiment until 1954.In 1954, the Kents were amalgamated to form The Essex and Kent Scottish Regiment that occupied the building until 2006 when they moved to a new quarters on Bloomfield Road.
