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.

Removal of a War Memorial Cardiff City Hall
IP: 5.81.160.193




Dear Sir or Madam,

Dear Sir or Madam,

Removal of a War Memorial Cardiff City Hall

I have been asked by my members to write to you for your support in a delicate matter involving the removal of a Grade I listed War Memorial from a Grade I listed building in Cardiff City Hall, Cardiff Wales. Please see the link below.

Our membership has a simple stance on the matter regardless of the politics. This memorial to General Sir thomas Picton was gifted to the people of Wales by David Alfred Thomas, 1st Viscount Rhondda and the statue was chosen through public ballot through a competition run by The Western Mail.

The Duke of Wellington made this report of the death of General Picton at Waterloo:-

"Your lordship will observe, that such a desperate action could not be fought, and such advantages could not be gained, without great loss; and, I am sorry to add, that ours has been immense. In Lieutenant-general Sir Thomas Picton, his majesty has sustained the loss of an officer who has frequently distinguished himself in his service; and he fell, gloriously leading his division to a charge with bayonets, by which one of the most serious attacks made by the enemy of our position was defeated".

Is it possible for your Association to acknowledge this email and register your members/organisations disquiet in destroying not only Welsh culture and heritage but that of the nations as well. General Sir Thomas Picton died in battle on the fields of Waterloo. He harboured a bullet wound to the hip having been shot by a sniper two days earlier.- but kept it secret from his men for fear he would be replaced. A hero in anyone's eyes.

1. Please can you write to Mike Weatherhead at cadw@gov.wales expressing your concern copying me in.

2. Can you make a concern - comment online to: -

Whilst I understand this is a very delicate matter - the scope of this vandalism is as yet unknown. What we do know is we have seen our national memorial attacked and this is what has motivated our Association.

Yours Aye
