With the permission of the High Sheriff of West Sussex I crossed the border from Surrey into West Sussex and advanced into West Sussex in full uniform 1,000 yards to visit Pennthorpe School where my two grand children are young pupils. I was invited to talk to early years and years 1 and 2 . Their principal interest was of course my sword which, with due attention to safety, I unsheathed. One young lad suggested the sword would be very useful for spearing a kebab. How could I disagree. I was made very welcome by staff and pupils and of course my grand children!
