. 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.
I gleaned your e mail address from the internet while researching Operation Motorman so I hope this finds you well.
I am working on a series of programmes for Forces TV - a television channel run by BFBS, the British Forces Broadcasting Service. It is available on Sky, Virgin and Freesat. The working title is We Were There - and the aim is to get ex servicemen and women talking about their experiences.
One of the subjects is Operation Motorman which involved the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers. I am after some assistance in tracking down some veterans who were there and who might be willing to talk about it.
It would be a recorded programme in a studio with perhaps four or five participants telling their stories. I think it would make fascinating viewing for a Forces TV audience.
So Mr Laverick, I am in your hands. If there are some of your comrades whom you think might be suitable then please let me know. I would be most grateful.
With Best Wishes

I for one was involved in Operation Motorman in 1972 as I had got married the week before and we went over to smash the no go areas up it should have been for 2 weeks but finished up another 4 month tour Replies: There have been no replies.
