HOW WE FACED THE RUSSIAN BEAR
60s TO THE 80s IN BAOR
10 -14 SEPTEMBER 2018

On the 50th anniversary of the Regiment, Regimental Headquarters is arranging a battlefield tour with a difference. The tour will be based in Hildesheim, Germany, and will explore the sites and positions that the RRF battalions and their antecedent Regiments would have manned during the Cold War. It is primarily aimed at those Fusiliers who served in BAOR during the Cold War years.

The cost is £310 per person sharing a double/twin room or £510 single supplement. This will include two nights bed and breakfast in the hotel in Hildesheim and one night bed and breakfast in the hotel in Arras. A packed lunch will be provided for four days and dinner in the hotel in Arras is included.
