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.

Operation Burberry
IP: 86.140.174.195




Hello there, I am looking for any photos or information your members may have regarding the deployment of 1st Battalion The Royal Fusiliers to the Royal Signals TAVR Centre at Bromley in Kent during the fire strike of November 1977-January 1978 Operation Burberry.

I was serving in the RAF Police during the fire strike and we were deployed to the TAVR Centre to operate the 3 Green Goddesses there from early January until the strike finished a few weeks later. I cannot remember if we took over the vehicles from your Regiment and so was wondering if anyone had any dates or photos from that time to help me get my vehicles archive up to date. Unsure of what happened to the 1 RRF markings on the front of 10A, they were not there in January! A yellow square had been painted over the markings, which makes me think there might have been another unit there after the Fusiliers and before the RAF?

I should mention that I now own 10B PGW 163 which was used by the Royal Fusiliers before us. I have been sent a photograph of members of HQ Coy 1st Battalion at Bromley which looks like they are in front of NYV 759 which was 10A. This photograph has been taken from ‘The Fusilier’ dated June 1978.

I would appreciate any help you could give and if any ex Fusilier who was deployed on this operation and lives local to me (Altrincham, Cheshire) then they are more than welcome to a reunion with one of the vehicles they crewed and operated all those years ago.



Photo attached of the vehicle line up when we took over in January.

Regards, Brian
