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

Peter aged 20 in 1956.

We welcome our newest member, all the way from New Zealand, Peter Harris.

 

Peter served from December 1954 – December 1956. After basic training, with Pl Trg Sgt Laurie Payne, he went on a Clerks course at I.C.T.C. Chichester and completed Grade lll, later he passed a further course and upgraded to Grade ll. He was responsible for production of all Part l/ll/lll Orders and maintenance of AER Records in the Tower Orderly Room.

 

His father served at the later stages of WW1 in the 3rd London Regiment (Royal Fusiliers), a proud fact for him that they shared the same cap badge.

 

He is a member of the Halswell Bowling Club in Christchurch along with another member who was a Fusilier in the mid-late 1960s having been badged after RF training into the Royal Warwickshire Fusiliers then subsequently into 2RRF. Peter said if they play in the same team and have a win, they normally gloat "Once a Fusilier always a Fusilier"!

 

Glad to hear it Peter and welcome aboard.

...and in 2016, aged 80.
