|A walk through
Beach House Park in Worthing is a very pleasant
experience. Come through the entrance opposite Worthing
Hospital in Lyndhurst Road and you pass by beautifully
kept bowling greens and gardens.
I take this walk
throughout the year and no matter what the season there
are plants, trees and bulbs to admire. Nothing could be
further from your mind as you walk past as war.
Yet when you are past all of the bowling greens in
front of you is sunken garden feature (pictured left).
Planted with conifers and herbaceous shrubs it is most
attractive and hold a little known memorial from World
War 2. Not to the brave men and women but to Warrior
Birds who gave their life in active service 1939-45.
There are two plaques to the brave birds, one
(pictured left) and the other with the quote "for
a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which
hath wings shall tell the matter" from Ecclesiastes 10
in the Holy Bible
