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.

GUYANA TODAY - JUNE 22
IP: 90.156.104.130


The power of the WWW! I made contact today with Col Martin Travers RRF, a former Pl Comd who is currently touring Guyana. I thought LF's would be interested in his FB post of Kaieteur Fallís and the condition of the late Cpl. Peter Singletonís grave (formerly Signal Platoon)
"Big thanks to the Guyana Defence Force for the 150-mile Skyvan flight from Georgetown to Kaieteur national park today. At this time of year (the latter part of the rainy season), the parkís famous waterfall is at its most impressive - a single drop of 740 ft (5 x Niagara, 2 x Victoria Falls), made even more awesome by the terrain, insect-eating plants, thick jungle and of course the journey. I am very privileged to be here and soften the blow of missing the Jubilee celebrations at home.

I stumbled across the grave of 22056565 Cpl Singleton LF at the British Military Cemetery in Georgetown. I was planning to research this when I get back, so I was interested to hear the history if you know. Sadly, the cemetery is in a sorry state, Iíll investigate that as well."
I have replied to Col Martin and informed him of my Guyana article which covers many aspects of his ongoing visit. Les 6th June 2022
