SMHS Meeting - Forgotten Heroes of Lewes

18 Mar 2011

Following unforeseen circumstances preventing our scheduled speaker from delivering her talk, Geoff Bridger stepped in at the last minute. Geoff took fellow SMHS members on a walk through the memorials dedicated to local war heroes from both world wars around Lewes. Originally created as a guided walk Geoff adapted this into an informative presentation, giving him many opportunities to recount additional stories relating to the First World War.

Members were shown the recent findings from our site survey of the proposed SMHS excavation in West Sussex. Various military related objects were discovered by our metal detectorist ranging from small caliber bullets + cartridges to a uniform trouser button.
