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)
Re(2): New Feature of interest to Dennis Robinson
IP: 86.141.6.131


I hgave been re reading the feature again and can only mention a few items
Photo shows his as an Officer on a troop ship Near Aden
His Regimental number prior to a commision was a 144 which seem to be that he was in the GS corps for his training
The ammunition accident must have been in the UK prior to getting a commission in Sept 1945.
When in Jullundar we did not have any Armour, tanks or even armoured cars we were just an Infantry Battalion working in Aid of the Civil Powers.
It is possible that When The 1/8TH came home he might have been sent to the ASSAM RIFLES as his tour of duty in FARELF was less than the necessary 3 years and he was transferred to finish his overseas tour of duty
It could be here that he had training with the airborne forces but i doubt it
On returning to IUK in 1947 he had a tour in NI until his discharge in 1950
During his time on the NWF i feel sure he would have had at least one meeting with the !st Battaliion who were in LUCKNOW not far from the NWF
