World War 1 in Uckfield exhibition ends on Saturday

The Remembrance exhibition at Bridge Cottage which has been open for the past week ends tomorrow Saturday November 17 from 10:00am to 3:00pm.

There is a timeline of events around the room and there is a cascade of knitted poppies, lent to the centre by the organisers of the recent event in Selby Gardens along with some crosses from the battlefields.

There are many press cuttings from the time and photographs. Other exhibits include medals.

The death toll in Uckfield was 132,  and everybody in the town would have known someone who died in the war.

Some of the exhibits are shown below but it is well worth a visit before the exhibition ends tomorrow.
