. 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.
Messages posted in the last 24 hrs. are in White.
Bastion Vigil site IP: 188.8.131.52 Posted on 26/9/2014 at 12:23:21 by Joe Eastwood
THE BASTION VIGIL SITE
At 1745 hours this evening British Forces Afghanistan will gather at the Bastion Vigil site to remember those Men and Women who made the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan and to close the Bastion Vigil site.
After the closing ceremony the brass plaques will be removed from the Bastion Wall and be sent back to the National Arboretum, and the wall will be dismantled. The brass plaques will be placed within the new Bastion Vigil wall at the National Arboretum which will be close to the Basra Wall and the Fusilier Memorial.
The padre will close the ceremony at Bastion with words from the KHOMIMA EPITAPH:
'When you go home, tell them of us and say, for your tomorrow, we gave our today'.
At 1745 hours all Fusiliers should reflect privately on friends and colleagues no longer with us;
