I have done various searches via the internet and I have drawn a blank.

I did a very quick google search using the terms "Kitchener Kent Jews"
and almost instantly turned up:

where it says that in the Special Collections of the University of
Southhampton there are copies of the "Kitcherner Camp Review," the Journal
of the Kitchener Camp for Refugees at Richborough, near Sandwich, Kent,
March-November 1939.

The listings at the above Southampton Library's special collections website
also show that there are quite a few documents, letters, etc., concerning
Jews, although the entry for the Kitchchener camp doesn't specify "Jews"
but only "refugees."

I attended Southampton University and they host the Parkes Library which is
a library (and institute) containing collections of Jewish interest

It would seem that the Kitchener camp papers are located in the main

Incidentally I was a resident of Montefiore House, named not after Sir Moses
M but Claude Montefiore who was an early Principal.

I found out recently that the opposite building was the home of Samuel
Montagu (later Lord Swaythling) who founded the Federation of Synagogues.
