West Sussex Gazette: December 13, 1855

The paper comments that it is now 8 months since the Royal Sussex Artillery Militia “arrived for duty at the fort at this place.” It says that during this time the men’s “conduct has been exemplary.” “They are a remarkably fine body of men…” They were enrolled chiefly from the East Grinstead area. The commander was Capt. Moor, of Pixton Hill. The other officers were Lieut. Molineux and Lieut. Turner. The paper says that, as a result of the intelligence of the men and the zeal of the officers, that everyone who sees their drill thinks that they are remarkably efficient.
