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. PUTTING A MESSAGE ON A STRING PLEASE PUT YOUR MESSAGE AT THE END OF THE STRING NOT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STRING IT MAKES THE STRING EASIER TO FOLLOW. FROM NOW ON IF YOU DON'T PUT YOUR MESSAGE AT THE END OF THE STRING IT WILL BE DELETED Messages Messages posted in the last 24 hrs. are in White.

Good Afternoon David and a warm welcome to the Web Site
Your father would of course have served in the 1st Bn. If you go to the main index page for the Web Site and click on the button marked Postings Gallery it will bring up all the battalions of the Lancashire Fusiliers. Click on the 1st battalion and all information relating to the 1st Bn will appear. Scroll down to the relevant place names ie Osnabruck, British Guiana, Weeton and Hong Kong which should cover your father's service. Just click on each place in bold black type. You will find hundreds of photographs and information about the various postings.
Now then in respect of his actual service. Service Records for individual Veterans are not held locally. You therefore you will need to make a personal application to the Historical Disclosures Office of the Army Records Office in Glasgow. I have placed a link below to the GovUK Website that explains how to go about obtaining a Service Record. Sadly however due to the pandemic a considerable backlog of applications has built up. It is now taking up to 12 months to process applications and the Records Office have in fact stopped taking further applications for the time being. The Fusilier Museum Bury do not hold records of individual Veterans and they too would refer you to the Army Records Office.
Have a good look through the pages and photographs and please come back to us if you have any further questions.
Kind Regards
