Lighthouse & Coastguard Station - c1939

Note the large radio mast in front of the Coastguard Station. Eric says this photo is 1946, but the Boat Club building is missing so it must be from before that. See a later view in picture #1889.

Was the mast a tide signal mast? You can see an almost identical one at the other end of the country on the Rye Harbour image library.

The coastguards used this mast as a gale warning indication, cone upward was a northerly direction gale, cone pointing down, southerly direction gale.
