A war memorial in the form of an obelisk put up by the Royal Sussex Regiment in 1888 in memory of men killed during the invasion of Egypt by British Forces in 1882. British troops then occupied Egypt until the Anglo-Egytpian Treaty of 1922. The memorial also commemorates soldiers who were killed during the Nile expedition of 1884-5. This was a British mission to relieve Major-General Charles George Gordon at Khartoum, Sudan.
