As most of you are now aware the Regiment will be replacing the Fusilier Memorial at the National Arboretum in 2013.As with all projects of this type it is impossible to please all of the people all of the time.The cost of the Monument is £25k and it is estimated that a further £10k will be needed for the unveiling ceremony in 2013 to which all Fusiliers and the families of our Fusiliers killed in action will be invited.The Colonel in Chief will be invited to lead the ceremony.The Commanding Officer, Lt Col Jon Swift, presented each of the men with their medal.The many hours of practice supervised by the Regimental Sergeant Major and the men clearly showed in the precision of the drill, despite the wet conditions.The CO also promoted several NCOs and had the pleasure of awarding 2 Long Service and Good Conduct Medals to Cpl Martin Pike and Sgt 'Sandy' Sanderson.The CO presents Cpl Dixon his Afghanistan medal CSgt Gardner promoted to WO2 by the CO Despite an extremely wet start to the day, the gods must have been on the side of the Unit Welfare Officer Capt 'Goldie' Goldsmith as it stopped raining and the sun even came out for the 1 RRF families day on the rugby pitches.
All serving and retired Fusilier Officers are encouraged to attend what promises to be another splendid evening.
It is made from a single piece of dark grey curved granite which ill be polished.
The dimensions will be approx 8 ft wide and 6 ft high.
It also gave the Fusiliers an opportunity to think and act as an insurgent.
All of these opportunities will be very helpful when the Battalion starts its own Pre-Deployment Training for Afghanistan.
