The plaques are dedicated to the regiment of soldiers from West India who were posted to Seaford during WWI. Men from the West Indies arrived in Sussex prepared to defend and die for our freedom and liberty, fighting side by side with British soldiers. The West Indian regiment would go on to play a crucial role in the First World War against the forces of the Ottoman Empire.
