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.

On behalf of my Dad...

Hi Everyone,

My name is Erick and my Dad whose name is Eric Pooley (Geordie Pooley) served in the Fusiliers in the early 70ís. He is a complete technophobe and barely knows what a computer is, but I just wanted to see if there was anywhere I could find some old service mates, I only have a small amount of info to go on. As with a lot of ex soldiers he lost contact with his BIA, he had re-enlisted and joined the Fusiliers after previously serving in the RAOC in the 60s.

It would be great if anyone remembered him, I know he would love to contact some of the guys but has no idea where to start. I know he served in Ireland and Cyprus. He served in Germany, Belgium and the far east too but I am sure that was with the RAOC.

After he left the Army in the mid 70's, he moved us from from Gateshead to Crawley, in Sussex for work (I was born in 74, which is when he came out) but he split with my mum and ended up back in the North East... I see him often as possible and in fact he came down (to Sussex) last week to see his first Grandaughter,who is now 6 months. It was during this time that I started to do a bit of digging, he is now 67.

Any responses, stories, old friends or photos would be most welcome. I know from my family and my Mum that he never really settled into Civvy Street, he always regretted leaving the Army, and sadly for one reason or another he has very little other than memories of these times.

Many Thanks in advance,
Erick
