Sorry, Queensman, I guess you're right.

Is there anyone in here who knows a bit about these regiments and could help with some information ?


And thank you for your bid, Alan Partridge. :)
I live in Sussex and have visited the Regimental Museum quite a few times if you have a specific question?

It certainly seems to be the 35th (Royal Sussex) Regiment of Foot.

It did not become the "Royal Sussex Regiment" until 1881 as part of the Childers Reforms.

Fear not but thank you, and in answer to your question: I know 'a bit' about this Regiment largely because The Royal Sussex (35th & 107th) became the 3rd Battalion of The Queen's Regiment, and as a young officer we were expected to know our Regimental family history!

My guess is that the soldier, or more likely the soldier's sweetheart or mother, who embroidered this fine article, 'adapted' the badge; XXXV being easier to fit into the scroll and easier to sew than ROYAL SUSSEX!

It is without doubt a thing of rare beauty and if it had 2nd, 31st or 70th connections, I would snap it up! You may consider giving this an airing on the R.Sussex Association site, I'm sure some of their number would be mad for it!

Good luck to you and keep up the good work!
