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(4): 2nd Lieutenant William Proctor
IP: 86.176.115.3


The evidence available would suggest that he served in the 6th Bn LF.
Click on the link below.
The 6th Bn should actually be referred to as the 1/6th Bn or as a typo error adding confusion....they are often referred to as the 16th. The 16th Bn is a totally different Bn and was part of the 2nd Salford Pals Bns. In early 1918 following very heavy losses the 1/6th and the 2/6th were absorbed into one Bn thereafter known as simply the 6th Bn. Confusing to say the least.
