Memories of World War I needed from Newhaven residents for exhibition

Newhaven Historical Society will be co-operating with other local organisations to commemorate the important part Newhaven and its residents played in the ‘Great War’.

A special exhibition will open at the Newhaven Local and Maritime Museum at Paradise Park, Avis Road, later in the year.

This will mark the 100th anniversary of the start of the war.

The society is keen to include as many stories about Newhaven men and women who served in the war as possible.

It would also like to include personal artefacts in the exhibition.

If anyone has items which are relevant to the events of 1914-1918, such as items of military hardware, objects, documents and photographs which illustrate the part played by family members in the war, please get in touch.
