Hastings character Dee Day White laments the loss of a local landmark

Dee Day White shared with us this amazing picture which not only shows the iconic Hastings lifeboat Cyril and Lilian Bishop during a visit by Field Marshal Montgomery and a snow covered beach in the background, but local landmark Tom’s Cabin, which was demolished to make way for the Jerwood Gallery.


Roll of Honour of those killed in the First World War from Hastings, East Sussex

The names of The Fallen of The Great War from Hastings are listed here as an act of remembrance. Names have been taken from - an exemplary resource for anyone interested in discovering more about the impact the First World War had on our communities 100 years ago. It contains much more information than is listed here. Many of the names have been sourced from “Soldiers Died in the Great War 1914-1918” a list created by HMSO in 1921 and is an official list of war dead. We have added names from the Hastings War Memorial and the Roll of Honour in Hastings Town Hall.
