Many belated thanks about Caleb Sivyer.After much searching I have found him on 1901 census index as follows:
CALEB SWYEE AGED 22 BORN SUSSEX, HASTINGS.
CENSUS ADDRESS ST MARY, HAILSHAM.OCCUPATION NAVVY
I have not found any other swyee's in Hailsham, so I imagine he was in lodgings.Your guess that he falsified his age to gain entry to the Roual Sussex regiment looks to be a good one!
When I find anything further, will be in touch.
