LST and Landing Craft Association Banner

In St Mary's is displayed the banner of the LST and Landing Craft Association. This was an Association of veterans who steered landing craft to the Normandy beaches during the Second World War. Much of their training was on Hayling Island. The Association held its final reunion in September 2011, with a moving service in St Mary's, at the end of which the banner was handed over to the church for safe-keeping.
