. 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.

He completed tours in 5 Airborne Brigade and the Ministry of Defence; then commanded 32 Engineer Regiment in Germany and Bosnia. He went on to command 16 Air Assault Brigade at its inception in 1999 and was latterly General Officer Commanding 1 (UK) Armoured Division, assuming command in Iraq shortly after the “liberation” in 2003. He worked on the joint staff in Permanent Joint Headquarters and the Ministry of Defence before moving to be Commander-in-Chief, UK Land Forces in 2009. He served as Chief of the General Staff 2010-14.
He was appointed Colonel Commandant of the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers 2002-09; of the Royal Engineers 2002-13; and of the Brigade of Gurkhas 2012-16.
