What follows is as far as possible an accurate transcription of two of L.L. Duncan's field notebooks for West Kent memorial inscriptions. They are written up in his shorthand, in pencil, on the site, on rather yellowing, aged paper. The starting date for his work is not given but he dates the last entry as 25.5.19.His little, 6"x 4" note books were purchased near his home from "Lydall & Son, High Class Stationers and Fancy Goods Importers of 75, High Street, Lewisham"! The entire collection of Mr Duncan's notebooks and other materials are lodged with the Library of the Kent Archaeological Society.
