Crimes that Shocked the Medway towns

The following pages were written not by me, but by the staff of the Chatham News in the early1970s before I joined. They were published in a book called Crimes that Shocked the Medway Towns, which is now out of print. The copyright of that remained with its publishers, Parrett & Neves, and I am grateful to Graham Parrett for permission to republish here.

    Does anybody know Barry Walters and Freddy Summerville from the 1980s? They were well known in Chatham.

      I knew Freddie very well. I live near his daughter. He is still going and now lives in Chatham, Kent. If you want any more info, tell me what you need and I can let you know.

    Does anyone remember back Greer from the 60s and 70s? He use to drink at the Good Intent in New Road, Chatham.
