Well done Dilly, your wife Anita is indeed a Royal Sussex wife.
You should not resent anything, as you are a Royal Sussex soldier whom joined in 1962. You were the same as the rest of us, when the M.O.D. in 1966 closed down our County Regiment The Royal Sussex Regt. We then became the Queens Regt. A totally different Regiment, this was against our will.
The Queens Regt. is NOT the Royal Sussex Regt and never will be. Those who enlisted in the Royal Sussex Regiment, are Royal Sussex soldiers. They may have served with other Regts. but they are originally Royal Sussex.
