Slim had a wonderful send off this afternoon there were in excess of 100 people in attendance about 30 to 40 from the regiment.
The service could only have been organised by Slim himself. It was a celebration of his life, the "hymns" were joyous songs culminating in Sussex By The Sea and an excellent buffet.
Both the Hastings and 4/5th Cinque Ports Bn standards were paraded by Martin Potter and Malcolm Sharp, whom the branch thank for doing a marvelous job.
Slim joined the TA prior to joining the Royal Sussex hence the 4/5th Standard.
Rest in Peace, Friend of the Regiment and all members of the regiment.
