Gallipoli campaign parade returns to Bury

The Bury Times Report
Gallipoli campaign parade returns to Bury town centre in style

The parade on Sunday

Fusiliers, veterans, cadets, and VIPs gathered in Bury in memory of a conflict in Turkey during the First World War.

The bravery shown on the morning of April 25, 1915, by the 1st Battalion of the Lancashire Fusiliers on the Gallipoli Peninsula has been remembered since, and on Sunday the annual parade returning after a three-year absence amid the pandemic.

The battle famously resulted in the award of six Victoria Crosses “before breakfast”, but the successful capture of “W Beach”, resulted in up to 700 members of the regiment being killed or wounded.


After a service at Bury Parish Church, the parade marched through the town.


The parade on Sunday

The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, known as "The Fusiliers", is an English infantry Regiment in the British Army, formed from four historic Fusilier Regiments in 1968.

Since then, the Fusiliers have seen service across the world in Northern Ireland, Cyprus, the Balkans, the 1st and 2nd Gulf Wars and Afghanistan.

The Regiment has two battalions – First Fusiliers in Tidworth and Fifth Fusiliers in Newcastle – and both adapt readily to challenging scenarios.
