In early August the Regiment moved to the “Canadian” county of SUSSEX and took
up residence at CHAPELWOOD MANOR near NUTLEY.
This was a hutted camp, not far from ALFRISTON Ranges, on the edge of ASHDOWN FOREST,
an excellent area for training and deployments.
As part of the coast defence scheme one battery came under command the 1st Armoured Brigade
and was situated in BRIGHTON.
This was done by the batteries in rotation with 60 battery starting the ball rolling.
During August much fire and movement training was carried out by all batteries on
The quickest action was by 37 battery who held the record with a time of 3 minutes.
On the whole the response from the guns was excellent.
