Bexhill in WWII Gallery

Bexhill in WWII Gallery

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, and 80 years since the dark days of 1940 – when Bexhill and its coastline were targets for Nazi invasion and air attack.

Find out where the bombs fell on our giant town map, see original items from WWII, from gas masks to posters, ration books, helmets and other artefacts from the conflict.

Watch historical films and inspect our representation of an air raid shelter in our new gallery space. Our recordings share local people's personal experiences of war on the Home Front.
