: Sorry Rob I respect your veiws but this is about Colours Regiments die to the last man standing, Colours are fought for ,look at the Die Hards ,we are saying out of respect you are doing a good job but it should be under your own badge or colours , The Regiment can go on but but as Barry Lane will tell you the younger generation will carry on with the limited company, all other serving Regiments would not allow this Rob ,and Rob being enthusiastic as you are design your own identity for those not served but respect our Regiment,
: I do hope you understand and no anermosity,
: When we took the Queens shilling we was expected to live and die by the colours.
: P.S. your family was the first military family I met on joining ?
Iím not sure I share your last man standing stance. Yiu are right we are a dying breed and when the last one goes. Whoever that is thatís the end of the a royal Sussex served soldier but not surely the end of the regiment.
Theses soldiers that fought in all battles since we were formed had taken the queens or kings shilling and fought for the country while wearing our badge.
When I joined the Army and took the Queens shilling I didnít think for one minute that if I was the last one standing that would be the end of my regiment
I served the queen for 25 years. I was a royal Sussex soldier badged queens. Fir many years.
I believe itís sad to think when the last one goes the regiment goes
That canít happen.
After weíve all gone we must find a way of keeping the regiments name alive.
I believe Rob B should absolutely be allowed to wear his dads regalia that guarantees the name of the regiment stays alive a few years more
I disagree with TA who has posted about Tom. Dick. Harry. Heís right to a point but Rob B is not Tom. Dick or Harry
