Peter, one of our volunteers, has made a model of the artillery train that was produced by the 1st Sussex Artillery Volunteers in 1894. The first ever artillery train that could fire a full 360 degrees without falling off the rails.
The model will be shown for the first time at the Sompting & District Model Railway club exhibition which is being held at Sompting Village Hall, Saturday 11th May (10:00 – 17:00) & Sunday 12th May (10:00 – 16:30).
Please come along to show your support (and of course see some brilliant rail layouts).
Great day by all at the Easter Fun Day – many many thanks to all who turned up and to the volunteers who made this day a great success. We raised over £400 which will help fund our next big event – Military History Weekend!
Egg and spoon races, sack races & the Easter Hunt were enjoyed by all, including some adults! The airsoft shooting range and gun display was out for the first time in 2013, and it was nice to see so many people interested in the history of the fort, and enjoying the tours.
It seemed like we even managed to coax the sunshine out for the first time this year too!
Craig has put together a video which really manage to capture the atmosphere of what a super day it was:
A hearty congratulations goes to the winners of the raffle:
Also massive congratulations to both Mia Salvage and Lizzie MacMillan for winning the best-decorated-egg competition!
Again, many thanks to all who came and supported us, and to all who helped!
Its nearly that time of year again for our Military History Weekend!
This year it will be the 1st and 2nd June.

On the 11th November, we held a very emotional remembrance service, which was greatly received. Thank you to James Watts who gave us search lights during our two minutes silence, turned the fort into a rainbow of colours and supplied the PA. A big thank you to the band 168 No Sleep who did a great job, Derek who did the service, Liz Coward for her reading, the Royal Sussex Living History Group and all the Friends of Shoreham Fort for making it possible. What a great event, that we hope you all had chance to reflect upon your lost loved ones. Thank you to all who attended.
Many thanks to 2 Dog Imaging, we have a video of the event for those that were unable to be with us:
You can view photos of the service, and how the fort looked, upon the Remembrance Service event page.
