A County at War

 Sussex was in the front line of the air war throughout the Second World War. In the Sussex Sea & Air exhibition you can discover how the skies over Sussex were riven by dogfights during the Battle of Britain and low level surprise attacks by ‘tip and run’ raiders. You can also listen to the chilling sound of a V1 (Doodlebug) rocket and imagine the tension as the distinctive noise stops and you wait to see where it will fall…

The ‘Sea’ part of this exhibition covers naval history from the Victorian era onwards through the stories of local seaman. If you’ve ever wondered what the Battle of the Atlantic was and why victory was so vital to Britain, you can find your answers in here.
