Text Box: Text Box: Kent in WWI

The Swale Search & Recovery club is an active and vibrant club

As well as the simple enjoyment of metal detecting, we venture to assist others in any way we can by

finding lost articles, raising funds for deserving organisations through club rallies

and helping to unearth history for present and future generations to enjoy
