WWI Centenary: 100 Years

We’ll be marking the centenary of the end of World War I with mixed displays and a talk on Worthing during the war.

Our displays will look at the training of soldiers at Shoreham Army Camp, the fighting conducted by the Royal Sussex Regiment, and of course the Home Front and the effects of the war on the people of Worthing.

We will also have a talk, “Home Front & Front Line”, which will include extracts from diaries in our collection.

Also, we’ll have a special 40min video on loop where local residents have shared stories of their ancestors in WWI.
