Centrally shown is the war memorial built to commemorate Rottingdean’s soldiers who died during the two world wars. The war memorial is in the form of a memorial cross standing on a plinth on a two-stepped base on a paved area on the village green by the pond. There are 37 surnames with one Christian name only for World War 1. A further 29 names have been added for World War 2. Rottingdean is a small village near Brighton in West Sussex, UK. This photograph was taken from a wooden bench against the flint wall of the “Kipling Garden” Rudyard Kipling lived for a time in a house to the right of the scene in this image.
