Description

St Catherines Light.

The Lighthouse stands on St Catherines Point overlooking the English Channel, which is the Southern most part of the Isle of Wight. Sixty eight years ago on the 1st June 1943 three lighthouse keepers were killed by enemy action, when a bomb from a German aircraft fell on the engine room where they were taking shelter during an air raid.Today a 68 year old Union Jack still adorns one of the walls as a sign of rememberance and respect.
