An Old Brompton Royal Marine

Samuel Mchaffey, photo taken on the steps of Chatham Town Hall in 1925.

When there were dinner and dances at the Town Hall in Chatham the organizers would  request a young Royal Marine bugle boy -drummer to play. The original photo had another young Marine dressed in  17th century Marine uniform.This is the photo of Sam Mchaffey who was about 14yrs of age, about 1925. He lived in Old Brompton all his life and was stationed at Chatham Royal Marine Barracks (now Medway Council offices).
