The Royal Sussex Living History Group will also be on site, with the gun rack, and there will be tours available throughout.

On Monday, Vevo Vision, a double glazing firm based in Dominion Way, Worthing, will be installing doors.

Friends secretary Sharon Penfold said the firm had donated the doors and agreed to install them.

“They are doing it all free of charge, which is amazing,” she added.

The Nissen hut will be turned into an education room for Shoreham Fort.
