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.
Re(1): Private James Robinson

Good Morning Phil
I have emailed you. 
My name is Geoff Pycroft and I am the Researcher and Archivist for the Lancashire Fusiliers Web Site.
I will be able to provide you with information about your Grandfather 48959 Robinson and the actions at Aveley Wood. Before embarking on research it would be helpful to know the extent of your research to date, save repeating and going over old ground so to speak. 

Click on the link below to his Medal Entitlement held at the National Archives.

You will note that he served in the Lancashire Fusiliers as Pvt 48959 and as Pvt 22415 with the Manchester Regiment.

He has four entries on the Forces War Records Web Site. 

He was at the time of his MM serving with the 17th Bn LF's and he was Gazetted on 21.11.19. issue 31653.

The action at Aveley Wood is well documented in the History of the Lancashire Fusiliers 1914 - 1918 by Major-General J.C.Latter CBE. , MC. Volume 1. A link to it can be found on the Web Site Home Page.

I await your reply before going any further.
