Fusiliers Association

1st Bn Royal Fusiliers and Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (London) Branch of the Fusiliers Association



Welcome to our website and hope that you find it interesting and informative. Although this Association was originally started for ex 1st Bn servicemen (hence the White Hackle), we warmly welcome both serving and former members of RRF to our wonderful Association room at HM Tower of London.


If you are still not a member then this is your chance to find old friends and to make new ones.


The Association has five reunions a year, all at the Tower of London, along with a special reunion for Korean veterans. See the events page for 2017 diary dates.

Terry Adkins

We have had some sad news to start the new year from Peter Galloway that Terry Adkins, who lived in Woking, had passed away on 29 December.
His funeral was held at Woking Crematorium, on Tuesday 24 January.


Representation from Branch members was welcomed. Peter carried the RF Standard.

Our well supported reunions at The Tower of London are the backbone of the Association. Next reunion is Friday 10th February, at 12 noon.


A special Vintage lunch (over 80's) is also held in September.

Reunion dates for 2017

The next reunion at the Tower will be Friday 24 March 2017, starting at 7pm.

Full 2017 dates on Events page.

Chelsea In-Pensioner John Westlake added a splash of scarlet to our recent reunion at the Tower alongside guests Jim Good and David Ferrier. John, who joined the regiment in the mid 60's, was joined by a good turnout and a few new faces which was great to see.
