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)

Les
Thank you for your New Year greetings and post with your interesting points. I read with great interest. Yes, the Web Site Statement is clear and unambiguous. However with a view to openness and clarity you may find the following of interest. The Web Site Team can be identified by clicking on the ' contact your site team ' button on the front page. As it says at the bottom each and every one is a volunteer and receive no renumeration of any kind. The Welfare Officer Dave Platt has himself built up a small team of enthusiastic volunteers who represent the Regiment at funerals. They too do not draw any kind of expenses and do so out of pure thoughtfulness. It upholds Joe's desire that no LF shall pass without representation.
The Web Site has no Editor and their is no big ' boss ' wielding a big stick. The Web Team maintain the Web Site by collective decision and responsibility. Dennis has been involved with the Web Site virtually from the very start and I myself since 2005. Peter Barton has recently joined the team to act as Treasurer. It was always Joe's wish that the Web Site ' stand alone ' and vehemently opposed any interference from outside from anyone seeking to direct or control the output of the site. Your comments about possible future changes are well made and taken on board. However, as stated the ethos of the site will remain. Any possible changes in the future will only be made after very careful consideration of all the related facts and incoming information. Any decision will be a collective one and always subject to the vision of both Joe and Colin. In effect nothing has and nothing will change in the immediate future. That does not mean however that the team have a completely closed mindset. I hope this has clarified the situation and the purpose of the statement posted by the Web Site Team.
Going back to the Regimental Colours and your very interesting information. Matters are now in hand to have all the Regimental Colours in Bury Parish Church properly identified and photographed in situ. Further information will be posted in due course.
Cheers and HNY to you too
Geoff P on behalf of the whole Web Site Team
