Sussex at War
WHILE south coast residents were surveying the damage and searching for
survivors after bombing raids on the town, the Herald and Gazette
series photographers of the time were out capturing the scene.
The original pictures bear the red stamps of approval from the official
Red censor marks feature on some of the images to prevent enemy spies
from passing on details of where bombs had fallen.
Today the fallen of the First and Second World Wars are still
remembered on November 11, but the ranks of the dead still swell with
the names of soldiers killed on recent conflicts.
The Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal is providing support for the
young men who have been injured in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Gulf War
and Falklands conflict, and the dependents of those who have died.
