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.
