Hastings in World War I

A free exhibition on local stories of the First World War is underway at Hastings Museum and Art Gallery. Cllr Kim Forward, lead councillor for regeneration and culture explained: “Each year the museum has been highlighting a key theme, alongside ongoing research into the impact the war had on the people and communities of Hastings. This year, they’ve been looking at the war ‘Beyond the Western Front’ and how, by involving over 40% of the world’s population from so many different countries and nationalities, a simple European conflict was turned into the first true ‘World War’.”

The War of the Poppies?

The White Peace Poppy is in remembrance of all the victims of all the wars. Post WWI, the womenfolk – the mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, girlfriends, etc – of the men who had died, or were injured or terminally scarred, mentally and physically, by what they had seen and experienced, created the idea of the White Peace Poppy. To remember what had happened – and with the intention that it would never happen again. HOT’s Zelly Restorick writes.
