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.

Dave,
Re our recent telecon.I will explain again.
On a visit to Greece last year I passed a British Cemetery but was unable to stop. The Cemetery is in the middle of nowhere. I subsequently researched it and found that it is the Bralo British Cemetery containing the graves of some 101 British service personnel, which includes 1 Lancashire Fusilier.

7407 Pte. Samuel Pemberton died 07/10/1918

The Cemetery is so remote that I imagine visits would be extremely rare, which is why I am so determined to return.

I am ex Manchester and Kings regiments so this lad would have been reasonably local to me, obviously I can only single out locals. There are also 1 Kingsman and 1 Manchester Regt.
I shall place a Legion wooden cross with poppy on the graves.
I leave for Greece on 1st September, I know that's a short time but if your Association would like anything extra or if indeed family members may be known and informed I should be only to pleased to make an effort to accommodate them.

Best Regards

Don Rhodes
