THE MEN OF A REGIMENT
A pictorial NOMINAL ROLL of some of the men & boys
The Royal Sussex Regiment, the 35th Regiment of Foot,
from 1701 to 1966, and their successors,
The 3rd Bn. The Queens Regiment.
from 1966 to 1992.
"The Orange Lillies"
An unknown Royal Sussex soldier.
A child - so wasted and so white,
He told a lie to get his way,
To march, a man with men, and fight
While other boys are still at play.
A gallant lie your heart will say.
from "Pluck" by Eva Dobell.
“ Eventually, All things decline
Everything falters, dies and ends
Towers cave in, walls collapse
Roses wither, horses stumble
Cloth grows old, men expire
Iron rusts and timber rots away
Nothing made by hand will survive.
At last, I understand the truth
That all must die, both clerk and lay
And the fame of men now dead
Will quickly be forgotten
Unless the clerk takes up his pen
And brings their deeds to life again…”
(Wace, ‘Roman de Rou’, c.1170)

A Tribute from the Royal Sussex Regiment,
to the late
Charles "Chas" Stadden, a brilliant Military Artist & Sculptor.
Chas knew our Regiment well, after using his platoon of Mules to resupply us (under mortar & artillery fire !) on Snakeshead Ridge, Casino 1944.
He brought up ammunition, grenades, barbed wire, food & water.
On his return trip down the mountain, he took the dead & wounded.
