Some members of the 35th have been authorized to pursue additional interpretations for the regiment, outside the regular, established branches. We have decided to showcase them here.
Nile Expedition 1884-1885
A soldier of the Royal Sussex Regiment serving in the Camel Corps during the Nile Expedition.
…The sand of the desert is sodden red,
Red with the wreck of a square that broke;
The Gatling's jammed and the colonel dead,
And the regiment blind with dust and smoke.
The river of death has brimmed his banks,
And England’s far, and Honour a name,
But the voice of the schoolboy rallies the ranks,
“Play up! play up! and play the game!”
Vitai Lampada, Sir Henry Newbolt
