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(2): A funny tale from the Isle of man

Vince...brilliant story...we need more like this before we all become food for the worms!!
A tale I've perhaps told before....but worth a repeat I think.
Weeton Camp...early 1967? The battalion had been paraded and were all seated in the camp AKC Cinema, which from poor memory had a balcony and stalls? Their was a general noisy hub-bub of folk chatting etc., awaiting the arrival of the CO " TD ", who rumour said was to make a major announcement. RSM Nash (recently promoted?) was pacing left and right across the front of the stalls carefully watching for the CO and his party to arrive and enter the auditorium from the rear of the stalls. The CO and party duly arrived and on their appearance all that ' Jack ' Nash said was.... " Keep Quiet!!! ". Instant silence fell on 800 men. I sat there utterly mesmerised at the reaction to this simple order...not a murmur, cough or sound...instant silence. THAT I thought was the supreme example of authority over other!!!. ..utterly amazed. I can recall my astonishment to this day..some 53 years later as though it was a hour ago! 
The announcement by the way was the fact we were all off to Hong Kong.....hooray!!
PS...perhaps Mike Murray (then Capt.) recalls the day?
