. 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.
Re(1): 30 Year Commemoration Op GRANBY UPDATE IP: 22.214.171.124 Posted on 24/2/2021 at 12:08:45 by Dennis Laveick for RHQ

30 Year Commemoration Op GRANBY
As per the RHQ News item on Monday, the Regiment has commissioned a video Memorial Service to commemorate Operation GRANBY, the Allied campaign to eject Iraqi forces from Kuwait in 1991. The 30th anniversary of the cessation of hostilities will be Sunday 28 February 2021.
The Memorial video is about 25 minutes long, with a service led by our Regiment Chaplain and reflections from those of 3 FUSILIERS battlegroup who were there at the time.
The video will be released at 1000hrs Sunday 28th February on the Fusiliers YouTube channel. You can see our channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXuDkz-G7SzkeD_PiuIunjQ. Visit it after 1000 Sun 28 Feb or subscribe and you will automatically be alerted to the release
of the video.
We hope it will allow the Regimental family and those who served with us to pay their respects to the fallen, to remember those who were injured and who continue to suffer today and finally, to remember all in the Third Fusilier Battlegroup who served together to liberate Kuwait.
