Nice to hear from you Steve. Yes, I do mean next year. This year we used the St. George’s Day event as a reunion. We all stayed in the Premier Inn and went out to Dave Tilleys club. We had a brilliant weekend. Doug Jones came over from Canada, Bren Webb came down from the Lake District, Dave Allaway, Eddie Cobb, myself and Megan, so there was a good bunch of us. We met up with Dave Tilley, Ian Stuart, Mick Tees (who was in a wheelchair)
Best thing was that there were no pretenders, (not with us anyway) only Royal Sussex Regiment veterans.
We did march with the Royal Sussex Regimental veterans, ( photos on Les Deacons site) the only problem was that some pretenders marched with us. That is the main reason we are having our own reunion, so there will not be any pretenders pretending to be Royal Sussex Regiment veterans.
We have to pick a town in central Sussex where most people can get to and stay overnight. We can all have a great time without having to drive home. (Not a lunchtime grannies tea and bun party)
Best wishes to you and yours Steve.
