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 2021 diary dates.

Our well supported reunions at The Tower of London are the backbone of the Association.


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

We'll meet again...

...in December

All being well we are planning to have our next reunion

on Friday 10th December. This will be the usual Christmas reunion. To start at 19.30.


Members wishing to attend must contact Ray O'Brien in advance to have their names on the list, otherwise you'll won't get through the gates.

The annual association pilgrimage to Mondement 2021 went ahead and was another great success, superbly organised by Richard Adams.


Staying in a friendly private hotel in the Champagne region with wonderful weather.

 Remembrance Sunday


We had a  fine turnout for our Remembrance Sunday service in London. After the wreath laying ceremony at Holborn, the parade marched to our regimental chapel, St Sepulchre for the service of remembrance.
