Sussex Yeomanry

Sussex Yeomanry

One of the oldest of the Sussex military units, the Sussex Yeomanry served with distinction during the First World War. In WW1 the regiment was expanded first to two and later a third formation. It saw service in 1915 with the 1st battalion of the 1st regiment (1/1st) serving at Gallipoli and Palestine. On return from the Middle East it was incorporated in The Royal Sussex Regiment as the 16th Battalion. In 1917 the Regiment moved to the Western Front. The 2nd Battalion (2/1st) was initially a recruiting and training formation, but later served in Ireland, and as a result the 3rd battalion (3/1st) was formed. However this battalion only existed for a short period of time and was soon disbanded following the incorporation of the 1st battalion into the Royal Sussex Regiment. Further information about the regiment can be found on the Sussex Yeomanry Association web site at http://sussexyeomanry.org/ .
