As part of Newhaven Town Council’s Heritage Lottery funded project, Newhaven’s First World War, they will be sharing stories about Newhaven during the First World War through an electronic newsletter that will be published six times a year. The first edition is now available and offers a fascinating glimpse of Christmas for Newhaven families and their loved ones in the trenches in 1914. Stories include a letter about the 1914 Christmas Truce written by Rifleman R Barrow of the Queen's Westminsters, sent to friends in Newhaven, from the Front. Before the war, Rifleman Barrow worked for Bannister and Sons in Newhaven and was also a member of the Church Lad's Brigade in the town.
