New Milton War Memorial

Marine Drive. Barton on Sea.
Tuesday 23rd August 2022
Memorial Clock. Station Road (Opposite Bradbeers). New Milton
On 23 August every year we normally remember the New Milton residents and visitors who lost their lives when enemy bombs fell on our town during World War II. In particular the bombing on 23 August 1940 claimed the most lives and is therefore the date we acknowledge as a focus of our remembrance of those innocent lives lost.
There were three bombings on the town, 23 August 1940, 8 August 1942 and 22 January 1943, a total of 26 civilians and 4 soldiers were killed.
The act of remembrance at the Memorial Clock normally takes the form of an assembly at the Memorial Clock at 11am for a 1-minute silence, a prayer, and an acknowledgement of the names of those killed.
