Giving thanks

The original caption on this postcard was well suited so I have left it. The ducks enjoying themselves under the railway bridge in Commercial Road, August 1911.  Picture: Robert James Collection

NOSTALGIA: A quacking day out as hundreds gathered to watch the Portsmouth ‘ducks’

Have your say

Today at St James’s Church, Southwick, there is a VE Day thanksgiving service at 3pm.

Following the service will be the unveiling of a D-Day map (the advance to Berlin) by the squire and Wing Commander Bland, the commandant at Southwick Park, formerly HMS Dryad.

All are welcome to attend.

Dates for your diary are June 6 and 7 when there is the Southwick village D-Day revival with much going on and places to visit.

I shall tell you more nearer the time.
