Add your memories

We would like to include your wartime memories and memories from your family in the Eastbourne Through the Wars exhibition. If you can add details or photographs about the 69 men memorialised in St John’s Church Tower, then please contact us.

Perhaps you have photos or memories of Eastbourne in World War 2. Were you evacuated to Eastbourne – or from Eastbourne? Can you remember what it was like to be in an air-raid shelter? What were your favourite recipes in the years of rationing? Did a parent or grandparent tell you their memories of Wartime Eastbourne?

You can visit the exhibition at St John’s Church, St John’s Road, Eastbourne BN20 7ND or contact us by phone 01323 738671, email remembrance@stjm.org.uk or by letter to the church.
