. 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 emailed Lady Julia yesterday to ask about our old boss.. here is her reply:-
How good to hear from you. We think of you and say we must get in touch - particularly at Christmastime - but somehow in the rush the thought does not get put into action.
It is nice for Jeremy to know that old friends think of him. Please pass on his best wishes. Sadly his health has gone downhill since you visited us on that sunny summer evening. He can't walk, and has a good team of carers who get him up in the morning and into a very grand special wheelchair. Likewise he doesn't talk much now and finds it hard to finish sentences, but I know the old bossyboots is still there. He is a very good patient usually, although not above ticking off his helpers whenever they fall out of line, and they have some good laughs with him.
I do hope you keep well. Are you able to attend the Presentation of Colours at Tidworth? It looks to be a big occasion and a a bitter sweet one for 2nd Battalion folk. We will be there in spirit.
With all good wishes for good health and happiness,
Julia and Jeremy."
JC has his 82nd birthday on April the 7th, please put your birthday greetings on this string and I will arrange with David Platt that he sends JC a Birthday Card from us all.
