At the War Memorial's old location.

By John Sweatman

I gather that the war memorial has been moved. This was when it was at the junction of Fort Road, South Road and Chapel Street. The Sea Cadets provided the guard of honour at Newhaven in the morning, and Seaford in the afternoon.

When I was a cadet in the 70's TD Defiance provided sentinels at Newhaven and a detachment at Seaford in the morning, and then sentinels and full presence at Lewes in the afternoon. I was one of the sentinels a couple of years in a row and was always fearful of dropping the heavy (to a teenager) .303 rifles when inverting them for minutes silence. TS Defiance also provided a bugler for last post whilst the lifeboat provided maroons in lieu of cannon.
