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.

Perhaps a little odd to some but I don't recall ever firing a Bren LMG. I was certainly never trained in its use. When I joined in 66 the weapon then in use was the GPMG affectionately known to all at the time as the Gimpy. When at Weeton I undertook a GPMG Sustained Fire Roll course, the instructor being none other than Joe Eastwood. We spent a brilliant couple of days down at Altcar Ranges expending thousands of rounds. I can't recall now what the rate of fire was but an ammo box of 200 went through in seconds! In the Sustained Fire Role it used three barrels that took but a moment to change with a good No2.
