In Grateful Remembrance of the Men of Littlehampton,
who gave their lives in the Great War, 1914 - 1919

They whom this Roll commemorates were numbered among those who, at the call of King and Country, left all that was dear to them, endured hardness, faced danger, and finally passed out of the sight of men by the path of duty and self-sacrifice giving up their own lives that others might live in freedom.

Let those who come after see to it that their names be not forgotten.
