Seaton was home to many evacuees, some of whom remained. It was also the site of an internment camp, and home to soldiers from many lands, some of whom were killed fighting for the British cause. Seaton families also many sons, of them in heroic circumstances. It was a time when the community came together in a way which has not been seen since.
Ted Gosling is a well-known local historian in Seaton and the author of many books on the surrounding area. Ted is also the Curator of Seaton Museum.
