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)
Ongoing research
IP: 86.173.79.202


I thought it would be useful to bring everyone up to date with our ongoing research...in brief

An LF who enlisted in 1881 and has the earliest known Regimental number...three digits! He was posted to Ireland shortly after enlistment then whisked of to India where the battalion was involved in putting down a rebellion.

An LF of the 11th Bn who served in Malta during the siege and thereafter served in Italy where he was involved in some of the fiercest fighting of the war.

A RA gunner who retrained as Infantry posted to 1st 8th Bn in Burma and became a Chindit. His relatives are now in contact with Dennis Robinson our very own regular contributor to the message board who was also 1st 8th Bn

The full identification and photographing of all the Regimental Colours in Bury Parish Church. Locating outstanding Regimental Colours and identifying where they are. We believe we have located the WW2 Colours of the 1st 8th Bn...more in due course.

Dennis and I are in the throes of collecting and collating ALL the research material held by the late Capt Joe Eastwood BEM. We hope to have it all digitalised as quickly as possible. This will greatly increase our research capabilities.

Two other areas of research have recently come our way which I believe are going to test us to the full.

And finally... trying to establish where our lives got too!!
LOL
