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 2016 diary dates.


Friday 14 October 2016

Chelsea In-Pensioner John Westlake added a splash of scarlet to our recent reunion at the Tower. 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. Next reunion on 25th November is at lunchtime!

Bob Keating

August 2016

Bob Keating's funeral service was held at St Nicholas's Church, Shepperton on Monday 1 August (Minden Day)' a lovely summer's day. After the service he was buried in Sunbury cemetery alongside his late wife Bridget.

Our well supported reunions at The Tower of London are the backbone of the Association. Next reunion is Friday 25th November, at 12 noon.


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

The Memorial Hall in Pusan Cemetery in Korea are asking for artefacts relating to the Korean War.

Can you help?
