Having just lost one of my long time ladies gwennie,she was a white Sussex,has anyone tried to replace a bird with an identical match without going through the integration process? Would it work? Am I daft? My local breeder is having a final sale this weekend and has some Sussex going cheep!

It won't work. Two ways of making integration easier are: get a new bird as young as possible (within reason). A young bird is often accepted faster than an older one. Better, is to put the new bird in a cage where it can interact with the flock for a week or so before releasing it into the flock. There will be bullying, but it's usually less.
