By all acounts this was an amazing sight as thousands of troops made their way into Horsham.

“Invasion of Horsham. From Bramley, Godalming and district about 6,300 troops of the 1st London Division, with Brigadier Fry in command, reached Horsham on Wednesday en route to Haywards Heath.

“The heavy artillery was located in Springfield Park and the field artillery in Horsham Park.

“It was an invasion of North-West Sussex that should be long remembered. Rain had been badly wanted and it fell heavily for a portion of the evening, making the conditions for the campaigners temporarily depressing.”
