Details

Hundreds of ordinary Eastbourne men faced the terror and horror of war in 1916. On just one fateful day in June, over 1000 men from Sussex were wounded or killed. Others, the lucky ones, survived - and went on to make our town what it is today. See the new recruits marching out of Eastbourne station and uncover the disastrous tales of soldiers like Albert Thomas Hendley, a baker from Willingdon who returned on leave to make his wedding cake and was tragically killed just a month before his wedding. Be moved and inspired by their stories in For Hearth, Home and Honour? Eastbourne learns the Reality of War, a new exhibition for 2016 at the Redoubt between 21st March and 13th November.
