THE FIGHTING FUSILIERS
PRINTED IN NEWCASTLE JOURNAL ON 9TH NOVEMBER 1916

“Some years ago our Government was seized with sudden fears
Of spending too much money, so reduced the Fusiliers

The Old Fusiliers, the Bold Fusiliers, cut down a whole battalion of the Fighting Fusiliers

But time will have its changes, and produced some other fears;
Not of spending too much money, but the lack of Fusiliers-

Old Fusiliers, Bold Fusiliers, they called for more battalions of the Fighting Fusiliers

When the Northmen heard the calling they responded with their cheers;

And something more substantial came to join the Fusiliers-
The Old Fusiliers, The Bold Fusiliers, rolled up in their thousands for the Fighting Fusiliers.

From the plough, and from the office, and from the mine came volunteers,

From all sorts of occupations to enlist as Fusiliers
Old Fusiliers, Bold Fusiliers, flocking to the colours of the Fighting Fusiliers

And they’re fighting like the heroes who, in all the bygone years,
Made the glorious reputation of the County Fusiliers

Old Fusiliers, Bold Fusiliers, every day they’re adding laurels to the Fighting Fusiliers

May God protect the soldier laddies in the time of blood and tears
Who are battling for our country in the ranks of Fusiliers

Old Fusiliers, Bold Fusiliers, heroes of our Northumberland; The Fighting Fusiliers”
