Deal Castle, as I've mentioned before, was built in 1539/40 by Henry VIII as part of a chain of castles along the south coast. When it was built it didn't have the crenellation/castellations along the battlements. Those were a later addition in the 18th century. At the same time they added a captain's house which you can see on the right in the lower postcard, which dates from 1911. The house was demolished but rebuilt in 1802.
Bombing during World War II destroyed the house and fortuitously restored the castle to its original form.
