Town pays tribute to the important role played by those who defended the nation’s coastline
There was a big turnout for the unveiling of an interpretation board at Seaton’s renovated seafront searchlight building.
Mayor Tony Woodman led a parade along the West Walk, accompanied by Irving Roberts, a local resident who initiated and spearheaded the project.
The board recognises all those who served in Britain’s defence in World War Two and illustrates the wartime defences, built from 1940, situated in the vicinity of Seaton’s beach searchlight emplacement, which was used to illuminate the sea and beaches to detect enemy ships and surfaced submarines.
