Project ID: SMR1022
Location: Friston, East Sussex
Project date: 2016
As part of SSAP, we excavated some sites in Friston Forest.
Description: Survey and partial excavation of a brick-built EWS tank for fire-fighting purposes near Friston Airfield. Graffiti etched into the render on the upper lip of the tank shows the tank was built in March 1944 and was therefore part of the preparations for Operation Overlord.
