The Kings Head, Bexley

A postcard from Miry.

My father worked as a barman at "The Kings Head" in the early sixties before we migrated from the UK to Australia.

It wasn't far from where we lived (Bexleyheath).

The owner of the pub, Frank Petty, begged Dad not to leave for Australia, but thankfully we did. Frank kindly sent us "The Times" calendar every year for many years after that. It hung proudly in our loo, showing a picture of one magnificent British garden for each month of the year.
