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(7): Perspective and the Snow Flake Generation
IP: 86.2.140.189


Good morning gentlemen, it is always an enjoyment for me to visit the sites message board each an every morning to read the latest news, your views and humour and to enjoy being taken back in time when I read of your experiences from when you were all young squaddies. I am almost 82 years of age , so compared with some of you gents I am still a bit of a kid. In reading todays article by Geoff on the snow flake generation, in honesty because of my similar views I often asked members of my family if I was becoming an old grump? I have never understood for example why there is a continuous complaint regarding single mother families as to how hard it is for them, I try to explain that like millions of other children I was a war baby and that the great majority of mothers were single as their husbands were fighting in the war and so brought us up without a father, as my dad was in the Royal Navy I must have been five years of age before I first saw him, on top of that there were no handouts for them and I honestly will never understand how they managed, they were amazing people. We were a very poor family of three boys and two girls but despite the hardships we were the happiest kids in the world and I would not swap it for everything, I have had a wonderful life and if given the chance when I meet my maker I would ask him for the same again. The biggest mistake I made was coming out of the army and leaving the Regiment, but I must put that down to a young mans folly. Please keep up the good work and continue visiting the site with your enjoyable banter for it is a pleasure not just for me but I am sure for many more of us. God bless you all Alec Mif.
