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.

Good Afternoon Malcolm and welcome to the Web Site.
As you will no doubt already know he has 4 mentions on the Forces War Records Web Site. It confirms his Service with the 2nd Battalion in South Africa and his entitlement to the Queen's South Africa Medal with clasp (QSA). He is recorded as having been wounded at Spion Kop on 24.1.1900. He is of course listed on the nominal roll for those at Spion Kop. Click on the link below.
We are often asked if we can source photographs of our LF Veterans but sadly in most cases it is an impossible task as it was not common practice to retain photographs of individuals. Group photographs such as Company assemblies were often taken by ' official ' photographers and where we have them they are shown on the relevant page on the Web Site. Veterans often purchased their own self portrait from commercial photograph studios to send to relatives at home and again where we have them they are on the Web Site.
Sadly in the case of Pvt 4826 Farrar no photograph is known to exist.
If you are willing to share your research we would welcome the opportunity to create a feature page on the Web Site using your material. Acknowledgment would of course be given to yourself. If you go to the Index Page you can click on the feature button and view the many features completed to date.
