Scott said: “We were honoured to do it, it was a nice thing to do for remembrance, especially it being the 100-year anniversary this year.

“It looks brilliant and we are proud of the work.”

The historic photo, which is on a postcard, shows a gentleman standing on his head on the roof of the same cottage Sarah and Paul live in commemorating the 1918 Armistice.

Paul said: “The name of the chap on the roof is George James Roderick White – according to Burgess Hill Past and Present by Frederic M Avery, which includes a picture.
