CHARITABLE ADVERTISING on Web Site There are many worthwhile charitable causes in existence, but we can only accept sponsorship or fundraising efforts on Fusilier Association websites, that specifically support approved Fusilier charities. This essentially means that it is acceptable to use these pages to seek sponsorship for The Fusiliers Aid Society (which includes Fallen Fusiliers), and The Fusilier Memorial fund only. We now have our own dedicated justgiving site (http://www.justgiving.com/fusiliersaidsociety), which you can use to help raise money for your cause. If you let RHQ (Asst Regt Sec) know the specific cause you are raising money for, it will be directed to the correct fund. Messages soliciting sponsorship for causes or charities other than the Fusilier ones mentioned above should not be placed on the message board and may be removed by the Webmaster.

Re(1): 1RRF Warrior Crash in Canada UPDATE
IP: 5.81.212.137


I have had this email from Bonnie Gregory sent to him by Jacob Evans in Canada

Yes I have had quite the knock about but equally it's nothing to worry too much about.

We were deployed on a Strike OP at night with limited ambiant light which negatively effected our night sight capability greatly.

No more than an hour or so into the operation our Warrior flew into an 8 foot ditch consequently swallowing our wagon entirely.

As a Warrior AFV Gunner, I was thrown about the turret much like washing in a tumble dryer; resulting in my left knee bursting open, my jaw to gain 2 minor hairline fractures, a laserasion on my jawline, my back to discolour with a deep purple and to add insult to injury; I was knocked unconcious.

Due to my lack of conciousness, I was classified as a T1 casualty. (If you are unaware of the "T1, T2, T3" system i'm sure Neil will remember it)

To that end, I was removed with great care from the turret and lowered onto a stretcher. I was then loaded onto a Battle Field Ambulance (BFA) and taken to the nearest HLS point. Upon arrival I was rushed to the Gazell Helicoptor and flown to hospital.

Despite the odds, I have made progress in leaps and bounds toward my recovery. I recieved stitches in my knee, my jaw has healed and I have ditched the crutches.

I am due to be discharged this afternoon (Canada Time)

In my own personal opinion, I feel like it was a weak effort to take down a Fusilier. It'll take much more than that to keep any one of us down whether we're still serving or retired.

OAFAAF.

Best Wishes,
