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)

I am firstly both appalled and saddened at some of the messages I have had to read through. As Captain Joe Eastwoods Daughter, I know this latest barrage of negativity would have troubled and angered Dad greatly. SO, I urge you ALL to remind yourselves of the following.
1. Re read and re educate yourselves of the mission statement of this wonderful website
2. This wonderful website serves as a family, an enormous resource of history and research
3. A supportive network.
It is NOT a social media site, there are plenty out there for spats and grudges, this space is NOT available for such behaviors.
4. My Fathers position/ boots within the website shall NOT to be filled. He trusted and handed over to Dennis Laverick and the team, C Tilley, P Barton, D Platt and G Pyecroft who are MORE than able to continue the website whilst adhering fully to the mission statement
5. I am sure my Father would not have stood for this and would have pulled the plug and closed the site. If he thought for one moment that Dennis and the team be subject to any more offers of " do differently s" or " making change" .

I will close by speaking on behalf of my wonderful Father. LEAVE THINGS ALONE. DO NOT MEDDLE WITH WHAT DOES NOT REQUIRE TWEAKING OR FIXING. IT IS WORKING WELL AS IT IS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR OFFERS OF FILLING MY BOOTS, BUT YOU ARE STOOD DOWN. NOW I URGE YOU TO CONSIDER YOUR BEHAVIOR AND ONLY SUPPORT DENNIS THE TEAM AND THE WEBSITE AND NOTHING LESS.
MY personal note........ I am grieving as a lot of my LF Family are losing Dad, and as such it is such a good reminder that life is short. Be kind, be well mannered to one another please. Well done Dennis, and the team, who work so well and so hard to keep this unique website alive and afloat. You have my whole hearted appreciation and support. As you were please. This is now a closed subject. Jane EASTWOOD.
