• At the July meeting we had 9 members present which is an improvement on numbers, which makes us believe
that having a permanent meeting place encourages more members to attend and hope to see more of you.
On Friday 14
July the rededication of Maj. General Murray’s grave took place at the old St Helen’s church,
which was well attended by about 60 people including the deputy lieutenant of East Sussex Maj. Gen. John
Moore-Bick CBE. There were 11 standards on parade, 3 of which were Royal Sussex, the Hastings branch, the
Cinque Ports and Eastbourne branch. At the reception after the ceremony Bill Wicking was made a life
member of the branch, which took him completely by surprise.
The following Wednesday, 19
July, the branch was again represented at the unveiling of a “Blue Plaque” on
the house where Claude Nunney VC DCM MM was born.
August is upon us and the deadline for the Lewes dinner requests is on the 10
August (with payment )please,
also names and pick-up points for the coach are required on the same date.
Goodwood is on the 5th Sept, Lewes dinner, 9
Sept, presentation of new colours to Princess of Wales’s Royal
Regiment at Canterbury on the 23
Sept and the trip to France on the 30
Sept. As Arthur Askey would say
“we are busy, busy little bees”.
The December meeting will be on 14
December, but it will be a social evening, with guests, family and
members, tickets are available from committee members priced £6. Numbers are limited so don’t be backward
in coming forward.
Take care everyone
