Being born and bred in Surrey, naturally I expected to join that regiment after training. But my section commander at Canterbury was John Blanchette, who not only inspired us recruits and was a great bloke, he told us plainly that R. Sussex was the best of the lot. I wasn't the only one who changed his mind and badged to the R. Sussex by the end of training.
