. 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.
Messages posted in the last 24 hrs. are in White.
Re(1): Death of Captain (Retd) William "Jock" Lister Ex 1st Batt Lfs IP: 220.127.116.11 Posted on 8/3/2022 at 11:31:54 by Jimmy Haddow
Sorry for my Belated Condolences for the Family of Jock Lister. He was often AAC attached to 1RF in BAOR and Sharjah in the 6o's, and Later as the First AAC Pilot in the Royal Regt of Fusiliers often Flying for all 4 Battalions ie; 1st 2nd 3rd 4th, when Flying in N.I. for the 1st 2nd 3rd Fusiliers on Recce Missions I and others flew with him as a Bn "Observer" I and the other Bn "Observers" all agreed that at times we took our lives in our hands by flying with "Jock" sometimes he'd Fly 6ft off the ground to Sneak up to some objective in South Armagh. Once he and I were out and about and we got caught in a Very bad Snow Storm a few miles from Bessbrook Mill, the Snow and Wind battered our chopper many times, I thought we would Flip and go down several times, we didnt, Jock's experience and Skill from Flying in all conditions all over the world including Northern Europe got us back to the Landing Pad at Bessbrook Mill, Jimmy Haddow 1RF & 3RRF
