About royal Sussex Regiment:
 
Sussex’s county regiment was established in 1881 by amalgamating the 35th (Royal Sussex) Regiment and the 107th Regiment of Foot (Bengal Light Infantry). The 35th was the senior of the two and had been linked with Sussex since 1805. It became the 1st Battalion, while the 107th was made the 2nd Battalion.
 
1st Battalion fought against Arabi Pasha in Egypt in 1822. It then took part in the First Sudan War (1884-85), fighting at Abu Klea (1885). 2nd Battalion spent the 1880s in Ireland, Malta, Egypt and India, participating in the 1888 Hazara Expedition.
 
Over the next two decades, both battalions served on garrison duties in India, Britain and Ireland. 1st Battalion also joined the Boer War (1899-1902) in 1900, serving in Cape Colony.
