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.

One more thought for Nick. IP: 22.214.171.124 Posted on March 31, 2022 at 13:53:10 by Leslie Ingham
A POEM FOR ANNE AND HER FAMILY
Respectful memories of a decent guy.
“I have wonderful memories of the Army, The XX Lancashire Fusiliers to be precise.”
Nick said to the youth.
“Some of them now sound quite barmy,
But some have a basis in truth.
We had adventures in many faraway places,
And maybe the odd pint or two.
We endured lots of friendly embraces, but that is the best of the tale.”
The youth enjoyed hearing Nick’s stories,
Of the veteran who sat at the bar.
He’d heard many tales of the glories,
That Nick told sipping his jar.
Then the youth without malice suggested,
Asked Nick, so straight and so tall,
“If you don’t mind me asking the question,
Do you have no bad memories at all?”
The question hung long for an answer,
As Nick sat thinking it through,
“It’s like asking a man whose got toothache
What next year he is planning to do?
I treat bad memories, like most of my kind,
As a problem with no end, I can see.
I put bad memories to the back of my mind,
But the bad memories just won’t forget me.”
