96SIT - Company of the Sussex Regt in Sittingbourne – West Street

There is not a date for this picture but the Regiment does not seem to have been based in Sittingbourne, although research has shown that men from the area including other local towns served in the Sussex regiment. The second battalion of the Sussex regiment saw service on the Western Front. Whether this is the battalion shown in this image we have been unable to ascertain.
