Our major work for the spring is to complete a book on the defences of Newhaven from the Forts Victorian days to the role the town played in WW2. Newhaven is a fascinating town for the military historian; There are Forts, coastal gun sites, air raid shelters, starfish sites, the Dieppe raid of 1942 and the underground bunker of HMS Forward, just for starters.
In support of this we are pleased to have been accepted as members of both the Seaford Museum and Heritage Society and the Newhaven Historical Museum. We look forward to developing an excellent working relationship with these two proactive organisations.
Lots more to come............SS
