Remembrance 2021 – Brighton Branch

by | Nov 13, 2021 | News

Members of Brighton Branch gather around the Regiment’s Abu Klea Memorial in the Steine, Brighton. Wreaths were laid on 11th November at 1102 hrs. by the Mayor of Brighton, the Brighton Branch of  the  Royal British Legion, and Brighton and Hove Branch of the Royal Sussex Regimental Association. Long serving Branch Secretary, Mr Bill Wood, stands to the left of the Memorial as viewed.

The lettering on the Boars Head Memorial has been refurbished by the local council earlier this year, for which the Association is very grateful. Our thanks go to all those concerned.
