Why not just call it ‘Sussex’

Regarding the letter from Mary Parker, in your edition of April 13 on the splitting of Sussex into two counties in 1972, I have been addressing my letters with just Sussex for a number of years.

After all, the post code actually finds the position of the building.

Middlesex is still used on addresses and it has worked for many years longer than Sussex, so why not Sussex.
