THE FOUNDERS OF THE LF WEB SITE THE LATE CAPT. JOE EASTWOOD BEM AND COLIN BOUTTY WERE BOTH FIERCELY ENTRENCHED IN THEIR INTENT AND ADAMANT IN THEIR BELIEF THAT THE LF WEB SITE SHOULD REMAIN AN INDEPENDENT ENTITY AND FREE FROM OUTSIDE INFLUENCE. IN FURTHERANCE OF THAT END ALL SUGGESTIONS THAT THE WEB SITE BE ALLIED TO OR INDEED INTEGRATED INTO THE FUSILIER ASSOCIATION OR ANY OTHER GROUPING WERE FIRMLY REJECTED. THE ETHOS OF INDEPENDENCE REMAINS THE SAME. :SMILIES (Emoticons)

Hi Les
No..I believe as I am sure you do that everyone has a right to an opinion...you should certainly not as you say drop it. I read your post thoroughly and as the saying goes " I know where you're coming from ". I was merely offering an alternative point of view. My comment about the Fusilier Museum was in response the Ged's post. This subject has come up in the past. It's a very well established protocol that Regimental Colours once " laid up " are never ever touched again (for any reason whatsoever). All Regiments of the British Army as I understand it abide by this " tradition " and the associated protocols. It's akin to the saying...' old soldiers never die....they just fade away '. Just as should the Colours. Our opinions may differ on the subject but that's adult debate. The idea that the Colours should be moved to the Regimental Museum has been ' flagged up ' in the past. It was quite rightly in my opinion shot down in flames.
What do others think?
Geoff P
