Graham Mayhew: Cliffe Casualties of the First World War
In this centenary year of the conflict’s conclusion, historian Dr Graham Mayhew will give an illustrated talk on the lives of the 48 men from a single area of Lewes who perished in combat during the Great War.
The men’s names are all recorded on a fitting tribute at the remembrance altar in the Cliffe parish church of St Thomas a Becket. Their ages range from 16 to 58, including three from one family as the Bridger brothers perished in battle.
The talk will feature the various memorials in the ancient Cliffe parish church.
Venue: Cliffe Hall, Cliffe High Street, Lewes
Tickets: £5, are on sale at Lewes Town Hall
All proceeds from the evening go towards the Cliffe church’s Weather Vane Appeal which seeks to restore the historic monument to its former glory.
