CHARITABLE ADVERTISING on Web Site There are many worthwhile charitable causes in existence, but we can only accept sponsorship or fundraising efforts on Fusilier Association websites, that specifically support approved Fusilier charities. This essentially means that it is acceptable to use these pages to seek sponsorship for The Fusiliers Aid Society (which includes Fallen Fusiliers), and The Fusilier Memorial fund only. We now have our own dedicated justgiving site (http://www.justgiving.com/fusiliersaidsociety), which you can use to help raise money for your cause. If you let RHQ (Asst Regt Sec) know the specific cause you are raising money for, it will be directed to the correct fund. Messages soliciting sponsorship for causes or charities other than the Fusilier ones mentioned above should not be placed on the message board and may be removed by the Webmaster.
Messages posted in the last 24 hrs. are in White.

RRF formed 1968
Before that one of their main formations was the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers formed 1935
Before that they were just the Northumberland Fusiliers
"Fighting Fifth"
The Northumberland Fusililers lost 16000 men in WW1 (most of them with no known grave and most of them not on any Cenotaph in their home town)
My little town of Jarrow lost 154 to the Northumberland Fusiliers in WW1 and only 16 of them are on our local cenotaph (and 90% of them have no known grave in Belgium or France)
Multiply that in all Tyneside towns and how many of them 16000 of the NF are on a Cenotaph in the UK (and probably 80% with no known graves in Belgium or France)
"We will remember them"
Whose kidding who?
And every year the British Legion rattles them tins for what and for who?
Those MPs and their councillors have turn their backs for nearly a century
When there are so many lying in the fields of Ypres and Flanders with no known grave getting ploughed over year after year
And not a mention in their home town
After next year they will be forgotten forever
As Siegfred Sassoon said
Here was the world’s worst wound. And here with pride
‘Their name liveth for ever,’ the Gateway claims.
Was ever an immolation so belied
As these intolerably nameless names?
Well might the Dead who struggled in the slime
Rise and deride this sepulchre of crime.
