Farewell to Hastings

Farewell to Hastings

This last image in the current series shows the Cardiff Pals gathering near Wellington Square as they say farewell to Hastings in March 1915. The Cardiff Pals were the 11th Battalion of the Welsh Regiment and served in the Salonika campaign. This BBC article provides some interesting information about the formation of the brigade and their service during World War 1.

The two photographs used to create the image are below. You can view the top image full size on my Flickr page by clicking on it.

This image is part of a series of Then and Now images I’ve created for East Sussex Council’s World War 1 commemoration website. The website is focussed on the contribution that the men and women of East Sussex made towards the war effort.
