The Bombing Party

artefact

This large centrepiece of 3 figures consists of an officer with a cane and two soldiers carrying rifles on a rocky base sitting on a plinth which has a silver plate which lists all the battles in which the 23 Battalions of the Royal Sussex Regiment took part during WW1. This piece was the Regiment's main centre-piece commissioned after the Great War as a commemoration. Included among the Battle Honours is "Murman 1918-19", which is why the Royal Sussex always refer to WW I as the 1914-19 War.
