Hove Coast Guards

by behan888@aol.com 15 April 2003

Hi, whilst doing family research, I have come across my gt gt gt grandad David Higgs who was a Coast Guard for Hove, and lived at no 8 Coast Guard Cottages, Hove with his wife Sarah, do these cottages still exist? would there have been any records on his job, what clothes would he have worn, and how did he end up as a Yeoman of Signals on the HMS Dauntless and HMS Princess Charlotte, and then go back to being a Coast Guard
the time he joined as a Coast Guard was around 1836. Regards Maureen Higgs-Behan
