Tomorrow our project group will be going on trip to the Redoubt Fortress in Eastbourne to find out more about the Battle of Boars Head (linked to The Orange Lilies project), where On just one fateful day in June 1916 in Richebourg, France, over 1000 men from Sussex were wounded or killed. https://www.facebook.com/events/903400313139490/
We are leaving in a minibus from Brighton and have a couple of spaces still for this trip, so please get in touch if you’d like to attend too: email@example.com
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.
