The Colonel of the Regimentís Christmas Message

What a year! Against a challenging back drop, where both Battalions continue to operate at pace,
we have managed to celebrate our 50th birthday in considerable style.
The Regiment successfully organised and executed a series of fantastic family events;
Thanksgiving Service, Gala Dinner, Freedom Parades, Memorials, Regimental Days and Gatherings. We presented Regimental Medals, named trains, Police horses, and Fusilier buses! In terms of wider reach, over 55,000 people viewed our website and nearly 200,000 our Facebook page; and we are followed by 50,000 on Twitter.
We featured regularly in the national media, be that the Telegraph, Times or TV News; and we were constantly represented across our 4 regional recruiting areas. I think we can safely say the country knows the Fusiliers are 50!
And as if that was not enough, as I have mentioned, the Battalions remain busy ĖUkraine, Canada, France, Germany. And in the background, we have been quietly getting after the Main Effort; that is fully manning both battalions. Whilst the 5th Battalion has been able to retain full manning and improve itís deployability, it is the regular figures which catch the eye this festive season. As I write we have 162 Regular Fusilier candidates in the recruiting pipeline we are well on course to achieve our Load to Train target this year for the first time in a long time. Outstanding! So I ask you to raise a glass to the drive, energy and commitment of those that made this happen; to RHQ, the Fusilier 50 team, the amazing Recruiters, the Battalions and all those in the wider Regimental family cadets, veterans, Worshipful Companies.
Too numerous to mention individually, I thank you all for making this such a special Regimental year to remember and I wish you all, and your families, a very happy
Christmas and a peaceful New Year

Paul Nanson
Major General
Colonel of the Regiment
