Prior to being licensees of the Builders Arms in Stratford, Essex, my Grandparents, William and Margaret Kelly , ran the Crown Hotel in Charing Cross. I think it is now a Garfunkels Restaurant. I have a letter from Levy & Franks brewery thanking my Grandfather for his work during the war. He stayed on in London whilst my Mum and Nana were sent to the country to live with contacts from the brewery industry. He kept the Crown open, collected furniture from other bomb-damaged pubs and buildings and looked after it and I think he was authorised to distribute excess furniture to people who needed it. The letter thanks him “for the loyal manner in which you have carried on your duties in the times of danger through which we have passed in the arduous War years” and states that “your devotion to your task has played an important part in maintaining the morale of the Public generally”. *
