Canadian War Memorial , Cuckmere Haven
This memorial stands on the west side of the Cuckmere valley and was erected in 2006 to commemorate the deaths of unknown Canadian soldiers camped in the field and killed in an air raid in 1940. LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )

The memorial was erected on the basis of the testimony of a local war veteran who laid poppies here every Remembrance Sunday until his death in 2004. Investigation has failed to find any official record of the event or uncover any of the names of the dead soldiers. LinkExternal link
