For many years we have had a small display of artefacts at Newhaven Fort. Recently the decision was taken to remove the display and bring the artefacts back to Robertsbridge. The display consisted of V1 flying bomb parts, wreckage from local crash sites, a propeller from a B17 Flying Fortress, a propeller boss from a Focke Wulf 190, the engine core from a B24 Liberator and a propeller from a World War 1 FE8. All these items are can now be seen at Bush Barn.
