Here is an extract of the speech given by Liz Lane:
"Worthing Archaeological Society is delighted to see our windows installed. There have been, and are, many eminent Archaeologists in Sussex, but these our 'our' Archaeologists.
Very few of us now can say we knew John Pull, but we all knew of him. WAS owes him a lot, and this tribute is long overdue. There is a display dedicated to him in the Museum.
Many of us knew and appreciated Con's vast knowledge of the archaeology of Sussex, and he inspired many people to study and to get involved. This would have been his centenary year.
Sussex Archaeology Collections 2017 was recently published. The first article, on the flint mines of Long Down and Harrow Hill refers several times to John Pull. In an article on Binsted, Con is mentioned. They are both still significant in Sussex Archaeology.
We must say many thanks to Siobhan Jones, who designed and created the windows at the Forge. We wanted to show John Pull as Archaeologist, Geologist and talented Illustrator, hence his drawings of axes on the shepherd's crowns.
We couldn't easily illustrate Con's important dig at Binsted, but there is a pot in his window. Also Cissbury and the flint mines, Cissbury being significant for both gentlemen, for WAS and for Worthing."
Alex Vincent talked about how Con Ainsworth had encouraged his interest in archaeology, and Glyn talked about knowing John Pull as his postman! Members of the families also gave short speeches.
