What a great set of images of a local event. My brother served 22 years in the Royal Sussex, was blown up in Aden and had his leg broken in a riot in Belfast. Brighton has an overlooked military history with B&H stalwart Roy Grant the principal historical source[The Brighton Garrison]. As usual The Argus got it all wrong last week, showing the 'Tigers' but including a picture of a grinning skinhead waving an English Defence League flag. How tasteless. And journalism at its worst, as the image had no reference in the text. Well done My B&H for an accurate up-to-the-minute display!

How could they have been granted the Freedom of the City of Brighton & Hove in 1996 when the Queen only granted City status to the two towns in 2000?

In those days it was called "Freedom of the Town". Hello Geoffrey Mead, give my regards to Phil (I fought with him).
