. 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.

Lieutenant Colonel Heiko Schraml, the deputy commander of the leadership section, honoured the service of former members of the Berlin Infantry Brigade as defenders of the freedom of West Berlin in a laudatory speech. Captain Mick Straker, British Battalion Commander in Charge, cordially thanked for the opportunity to place a commemorative plaque in their old barracks, then called "Montgomery-Barracks." Les
