The Queen's Royal Regiment (West Surrey)
The Royal Sussex Regiment
The Scout Section was made of Regular Army soldiers with a Lieutenant in command. Their role was train the Home Guard Patrols, but also to go to ground themselves in the event of an invasion.
In April 1943, the Scout Sections were reduced in size, with the two sections combining to create a single joint section. This included men from both previous sections, the East Sussex and West Sussex Scout sections.
Some of the men can be seen in the photos of the preceding Scout Sections and identified. Three men cannot be identified and may possibly be replacements, though it may be they are in the individual section photos but are not so easy to spot.
