    I've borrowed the photograph on this post from the excellent, Sussex PhotoHistory site. It shows NCOs of the Royal Sussex Regiment probably photographed between 1899 and 1902.

    I have some Royal Sussex Regiment medals for sale.

    I offer a fast, efficient and cost-effective military research service. Have a look at my military research page and drop me a line if you think I might be able to help.
