As a Welshman in this wonderful regiment I Wonder how did I get there ? And how did others and why we are we so proud of our past. For me in 1962 the recruiting office in Hastings was in Cornwallis gardens opposite the cricketers pub. The recruiting sgt was Eddie Clout. So when I was asked which regiment did I want to join the South Wales Borderers was lost in the ether.
So here's the thing about us the enlisted man why the Royal Sussex Regiment ?Is it because your from Sussex ?
Is it because you have family connections ?
Is it because your older than me (70) and did national service in the regiment.
Is it because you knew where you wanted to go ?
It fascinates me.
On this site we fight our corner and are so very proud of our regiment but how did we get here ?
