A MESSAGE FROM THE CURATORIAL TEAM

We are extremely grateful that the first showing of the light box exhibition “1916 – Lewes Remembers” prompted many people to come forward with memories, family stories and background material. We were also aware that the brief captions on the boxes did not allow us to use much of the wealth of information discovered by our volunteer researchers.

 

In addition, we have tried to make this audiovisual tour explore the connections between many of the light box stories.

 

The tour is a work in progress- some boxes have gained a lot of extra information and others none at all. Please do keep sharing your knowledge with us so that hopefully we can update and improve the tour in the future.

 

This site has been developed entirely by our volunteers and supporters and we would like to thank them for all their enthusiasm and input.

 

It is said that sometimes during the First World War, if the wind blew from the east the people of Lewes could hear the guns in France. We dedicate this project not just to the memory of the Fallen, but to all the Lewes families who suffered loss during the conflict.
