. 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(5):M/Size Fusilier Badge IP: 22.214.171.124 Posted on 8/3/2022 at 20:55:34 by Jimmy Haddow
Hi Dennis, Many years ago in 1RF I was selected by RSM Jack Hall to be an Assault Pioneer on The Albuhera Day Parade carrying an Axe. On the Parade Rehearsal, I wore Quite Large White Leather Gauntlets (of which I had to "Bull Up" with "White Blanco") also I wore a Large White Leather Pioneers Apron (of which I had to "Bull Up" with "White Blanco").
In the Middle of the Pioneers Apron was the Medium Large Size Fusilier Bde Badge (as "Depicted" of which I had to Bull Up). It was attached to the Apron by a Split Pin at the Back of the Apron.
I honestly think Jack just wanted the Assault Pioneer Kit Bulled Up, because next day just prior to the Actual Parade, I was told to hand over the Assault Pioneer Kit and Axe (of which I had Bulled Up the Axe Head with Black Polish and Linseed Oil for the Handle) and told by Jack to "Join the other Trogg's on Parade".
Thereby cleaning it for Jack.s Top Battalion Goal Scorer (Jack was the 1RF Football Team Manager and Modelled himself and the Team on Arsenal and Bertie Mee).
Fus McNaulty who wore it on the Battalion Albuhera Day Parade looked very smart, if I do say so myself.
