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.

Forenville Military Cemetery
IP: 81.136.107.208


My grandfather was killed-in-action during the second Battle of Cambrai on the 8th October 1918. He was in the King’s Liverpool Regiment (KLR) and is buried in the Forenville Military Cemetery southeast of Cambrai.

Apart from his comrades in the KLR, there are around 80 other soldiers buried at Forenville including 21 Royal Fusiliers and 10 Northumberland Fusiliers, as well as several other regiments.

I am in the initial planning stage for a centenary commemoration “event” to be held on the 8th October 2018 as most men fell on that day. I have made initial enquiries with CWGC and also the local Marie (Mayor) in the area.
I have “advertised” the idea since July at The Great War Forum, but with no UK enquiries at all, although family of the two New Zealanders buried there have replied through the NZ Online Cenotaph and they are coming all being well.

I wondered if leaving message here could highlight my plans with the hope of spreading the news a bit wider. I am happy for people to reach me for further details through this website. Obviously I can provide a postal address if needed.
