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.

Gentlemen good afternoon,
I would first present my bona fides;
I am a former regular soldier with 24 yrs service, initially 1PARA followed by RMP though The Lancashire Fusiliers has always been my "local regiment" in my heart.I am now 62 years young BTW!

I hail from Rochdale and my local Bn had it remained extant would have been 6LF.

Family members served in the Bn during the Great War and it would have been my preference. However, when I joined in 1975 I have to say I did not find the very generic RRF much of a draw (rightly or not) so I went another route.

I just came upon this website and the first order of business was to make a donation as I believe in never coming to the door empty handed!

My reason for looking and finding the LF site is that I am an avid militaria collector and a current "interest" of mine is the LF in the early post war years of the 1950s. To that end I am hoping to put together a representation of a Lancashire Fusilier of that period. I have most of what I need but if I may be so bold in my first post I need advice on; the period during which the LF flash was worn as a beret badge, the shoulder titles worn and any formation signs worn during the period.

It seems a fairly simple question but I want to get it right and who better to ask?

I shall be most grateful for any advice and look forward to enjoying this website.


Mark Blunt
