Rifle Brigade Memorial


This memorial, near the sea front, was erected in 1861 by the men of the 60th Rifles in memory of comrades who died in the Indian Mutiny of 1857.

This card was posted on the 2nd April 1912.  "Yesterday morning we went out on the beach at high tide when Jack got a bootfull and I got swamped all over.  In the afternoon we went in the north fall meadow and got very hot.  We are having extremely hot weather."

To the left of the picture is Camden Crescent.  In front of the memorial a horse-drawn bus waits.  Behind the memorial are the Granville Gardens Bandstand.  Behind the Gardens is the Grand Hotel.

The premises of Hart & Co., Furniture Depository and Removal Contactors, can be seen to the left of the memorial.
