Scenes inside the old RNVR Battery that was in Bridge Street

By John Hills

The unit photo below must be from 1956 or 1957. Can you reconise anyone in the picture.


Two of the four photos of the guard are dated - from the Annual Inspections of October 1957 and November 1959. ( sorry they are  a little dark ).


The gun crew photo is probably from one of the two re-enactments; either "Jack Cornwall VC" or "HMS GLOWORM against SCHARNHORST".

I am building a website to provide a living history of the Newhaven and Seaford Unit, and I would appreciate it if I could have permission to include copies of these photos on it. Thanks Eon
