Welcome to the section of our website dedicated to photos on East Sussex and the First World War.

The images listed in this section are drawn from the catalogue of The Keep archives. Within those archives, every document and image is given a selection of ‘tags’ which explain either their content or their time period.

Images within the collections tagged with ‘First World War’ will automatically appear in this section on our website.

Not all of the images have yet been digitised, so for some records you won’t be able to see an image preview, but all of the records you will see here can be examined in person at The Keep.

Among the images on the next page are photographs of soldiers in First World War trenches, images that show the impact of the war on East Sussex life, and some images of digitised newspapers, which can also be viewed in our newspapers section.

If you have any questions or queries about the images listed, do not hesitate to contact us.
