. 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.
Remembrance Sunday Whitehall London IP: 188.8.131.52 Posted on 7/5/2016 at 15:07:17 by Steven Fitt
Ladies and Gentlemen this has been sent to me via one of our members who applied to the RBL to attend this years Remembrance parade in London
The 2016 London Cenotaph March Past - Sunday 13th November 2016
Gentlemen, as mentioned earlier, I have received notification from the Royal British Legion about a change in procedures for this year’s March
Maximum 10000 tickets
The changes are as follows:
Each participant will be allocated a Category, these are as follows
Cat 1 - Ex Service Personnel holding a campaign medal
Cat 2 - Civilians deployed on Ops in Support of the Military
Cat 3 - Ex-Service Personnel with No campaign Medal
Cat 4 – Bereaved Spouses (who died on Ops)
Cat 5 – Veteran Association Representatives
Cat 6 – Military Charities & Associated Civilian Groups
There is a maximum of 10,000 places available in the parade and the aim is to achieve a balance of representation across that total which accurately reflects the wider Veteran community, including from the Commonwealth. The Legion will seek to ensure that as many Veteran Associations and Military Charities as is possible are represented on the parade. Within that intent, Associations are asked to consider prioritising those who served on operations, both military and civilian, followed by others representing their remaining ex-Service membership and Bereaved Spouses.
Carers who accompany disabled Veterans but who are themselves not qualified to march, will remain on Horse Guards Parade and will be hosted by the Legion for the duration of the ceremony. A small number of wheelchairs will be available on request for the use of Veterans who might struggle to maintain the pace of the March Past. This resource is finite and will be allocated according to demand on the day.
Due to heightened security measures the Metropolitan Police will need to conduct individual security checks on all participants. Basic personal information will need to be provided in advance for each applicant.
Ticket holders will need to bring both photographic ID and a document showing proof of address with them for access to Horse Guards Parade via the manned Police entry points on the
Allocation of how many tickets I will receive will be notified to me on the 29th July, I will then have until the 16th September to submit the information back to RBL.
The information that the RBL will require of each participant is as follows:
First Name (this must be the name on the photo ID)
Date of Birth
Place of Birth
First Line of Address
Category (as listed above)
I will not receive any ticket allocation until full participant details have been submitted. Once this information is provided in full the tickets will be printed with individual participant names as provided and are not transferrable
Associations will receive joining details and tickets in October Replies:
