KEVIN GORDON - Lewesian who rose to great prominence
A couple of weeks ago, I had an interesting day at the Tower of London and, as ever, I am always on the look out for anything which might connect to Sussex. I particularly wanted to see some prisoner graffiti in the Beauchamp Tower which is supposed to be similar to one of the carvings on the Star Inn at Alfriston. There were some imposing cannon cast in the great ironworks of the Sussex Weald but nothing much else of local interest. I enjoyed my visit, particularly the displays about the German spies caught during the Great War. One of them, Karl Lody, was the first person to be executed at the Tower for nearly 200 years and was also the only German spy to be subject of a public trial.
