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. PUTTING A MESSAGE ON A STRING PLEASE PUT YOUR MESSAGE AT THE END OF THE STRING NOT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STRING IT MAKES THE STRING EASIER TO FOLLOW. FROM NOW ON IF YOU DON'T PUT YOUR MESSAGE AT THE END OF THE STRING IT WILL BE DELETED Messages Messages posted in the last 24 hrs. are in White.

Good Evening Pauline and welcome to the Web Site.
I will carry out further research and contact you again tomorrow by email. I can confirm now however that his Regimental Number was 39321. He was wounded on 10.5.18 and again on 29.11.18. and was entitled to wear a wound stripe. He served in the following battalions during WWI. The 3/5th, 2/7th and 10th. His name does not appear on the WW1 Pension Records of 1914-1920 but I will research further. He will be recorded on the Medal Rolls held by the National Archives and on the Medal Card Index held by ancestry.com.  
If you go to the Web Site Index Page and click on the Postings Gallery button it will take you to the list of all the WW1 Lancashire Fusilier battalions. You can then click on each of his battalions in turn and read of their WWI actions.  Follow the instructions at the head of the page.
