We will remember them xxToday, at 11 o’clock, we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the signing of the armistice, bringing an end to the fighting of the First World War between the Allies and Germany.

It is on this day that we particularly remember, a century later, the men of Sussex who gave their lives in the Great War, and those who have fallen in subsequent conflicts.

The number of military casualties from the County of Sussex in World War One had never been calculated, as far as we’re aware, until we looked into seeking the number who fell for Sussex by the Sea ourselves last month.

We have studied every war memorial for each parish and borough of Sussex, trying our upmost not to duplicate names which appear in more than one local parish. We came to the number of 15,876. However, there will of course be those men who didn’t appear on any local memorials for numerous reasons. We therefore estimate that at least 16,000 Men of Sussex heroically forwent their lives during the Great War.

16,000 men would be 2.4% of the overall population of Sussex at that time and 5.3% of the county’s male population. In other words, over 1 in 20 of Sussex’s total male population didn’t make it to the end of the war. Of course not all males were of fighting age.

To put this in to context, 2.4% of today’s population of Sussex would be 37,104 people!

It is these shocking numbers of individuals gone, their sacrifice and the obvious impact this would have had on the community and the time and beyond, is why we remember these brave Men of Sussex one hundred years later and for evermore.

“You may tell them all that we stand or fall for Sussex by the Sea”
