Royal Sussex Regiment

The Royal Sussex Regiment was formed in 1881 as part of the Childers Reforms by the amalgamation of the 35th (Royal Sussex) Regiment of Foot and the 107th Regiment of Foot (Bengal Light Infantry).

During the First World War, the 1st Regular Battalion was stationed in India while the 2nd Battalion fought on the Western Front. The regiment also formed 19 additional battalions during the conflict, which served in Salonika, Palestine, Mesopotamia, India and Russia.

Over 6,800 men of the regiment were killed in the war.
