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.

Sadly I believe their to be no contest or grounds to appeal. LOL
I have dug out my old enlistment document Army Form B.271A (Form1) Regular Army. It shows that in 1966 I was enlisted into the then Fusilier Brigade. At the top of the enlistment form written in red biro it states " where possible desires eventually to serve in the Lancs Fus ". Given that the Fusilier Brigade was consigned to history in 1968 when the newly created Royal Regiment of Fusiliers came into being I suppose the question arises as to what legal authority was used to move me from the Fusilier Brigade (LF) to 4RRF.....which I had not signed up to! Simple.....the powers that be of the legal eagle establishment would have drafted appropriate legislation to cover the eventuality .....in other words kiss my a*** young man you're doing as your told or as Les says.... you obeyed the last order! NS men were undoubtedly tied up / screwed up by similar legislation. As we all know... many have tried to buck the system and failed. Remember the film The Hill?
