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.

Gallipoli 2021

RHQ/FUSILIERS/1363 15th April 2021

Afternoon friends and supporters of the FUSILIERS

Every year, the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers and the Town of Bury commemorate the bravery of our antecedent Regiment, 1st Battalion the Lancashire Fusiliers, during the Gallipoli Campaign. The first landings took place at 0600 on 25 April 1915 and the Battalion won everlasting fame by winning six Victoria Crosses that day, the so-called “6 VCs before breakfast”.

However, COVID restrictions in 2020 meant that that this annual service and parade could not happen – the first time since 1916. As restrictions still prevent the commemoration this year, we are determined that Gallipoli Day will not be missed a second year running.

We have therefore commissioned a special Gallipoli 21 commemorative video. This will be shown on the FUSILIERS YouTube channel, from 1000 on Sunday 25 April 2021. It gives a brief history of the campaign and the VC winners, with a short service led by Rev Julian Heaton, Rector of Bury Parish Church. It also includes video clips from serving Fusiliers, veterans and our affiliated cadets who share their thoughts about what Gallipoli means to them.

Our YouTube channel is at The Fusiliers on YouTube. As friends and supporters of the Regiment, we invite you to watch the video at a time convenient to you on or after 1000 on Sunday 25 April.



Major (Retd) APA Cole
RHQ North Secretary, FUSILIERS
