There used to be a pub in Rochester called the North Foreland, a real old sailor's pub, as most pubs in Chatham and Rochester once were. It was full of cap tallies, badges, ship's crests, and other...

Very difficult to say without seeing a proven (maker's marked) example. Unless Tomson's had a contract to supply the C.E.F. and made sweet hearts from the same die as a sideline, I cannot see why...
