Below is a message from the Queens Secretary and sadly it is our Granny Goodacre who has passed away. He was a well know within the Battalion and also a 1 Bn Royal Sussex Solder. He will be greatly missed. As soon as we hear about the funeral agreements it will be posted.

I have finally been able to speak with Derekís cousin and you are indeed right he was in the 3rd Bn. It is interesting as there is a reference in the history of Cpl D Goodacre being awarded his LS&GC from the Colonel of the Regiment when he visited the 2nd Bn. So much for records!
Thanks for putting this right. Iíll put a note into FB.
