SULLINGTON WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Chris Comber 2007

Sullington is a small hamlet south east of Storrington. The Sullington memorial is in the form of what looks like a light on the top of a tapering column set into a base outside the parish church, a dedicatory tablet is set at the foot of the column, in fact the column is actually an "ancient mill-roller" (source: local author Colin Ulph in his book "Southdown Walks"). There are 4 names for World War 1 only plus a dedication to the crew of submarine E 24. The church is in a narrow lane by a farmyard, very remote and muddy.
