    I found this very small memorial on the cliffs along the south coast, near the Seven Sisters, Seaford.

    CanadianMemorial_SevenSisters_Seaford.jpg

    The text on the plaque tells a sad story;

    This plaque commemorates the soldiers who died in this area and specifically in this field during
    World War II. Their numbers are unknown but their memory lives on.


    The following is a personal testimony from Corporal LESLIE EDWARDS 1920 - 2004 a local man
    who served in the area and laid poppies on this spot every Remembrance Day until his death.


    "I will never forget the day in 1940 when a Canadian company came to Cuckmere and pitched their
    tents in this field. I was stationed here and knew that bombers regularly used this valley for
    navigation purposes.I tried to tell the commanding officer but he was not interested in what I had to
    say. Two mornings later the Messerschmitts arrived. Just as the sun was rising they came skimming
    over the water and up the valley. Around Alfriston they banked hard and came back. Bearing down
    on the tents they opened fire. Steam, soil and grass rose in front of them as bullets and bombs
    entered the ground. All the young men in the marquees and bell tents were killed. The commanding
    officer, who was shaving at the time in the middle coastguard cottage, died instantly when a shell
    went through the wall that held his mirror."


    Remember me when I am gone away.
    Gone far away into the silent land.

    Thank you Richard. I'm sorry I didn't do a better job of searching this forum before posting...if I had, I probably wouldn't have posted my photos!

    There is no stone plinth etc with names on within the garden, however St John the Divine Parish church (3 minute away) has simple cross with parish names embossed in base.
