The Chairman
of the
Warwickshire and West Midland Page

Colonel Bob Carruthers OBE TD

Some 40 members of the Fusilier Association attended their AGM last Saturday, held in Alderson House Warwick, as the attendance this year was far to large to fit into AHQ. Major John Turquand TD was appointed as the Deputy Chairman, Major Bill Edmonds MBE, Treasurer, and Major John Lam, Secretary.

As always the Warwickshire lads were not afraid to speak up and we had a very useful, if not long meeting. Further "discussions " took place over a beer, and all left looking forward to the next meeting of the Fusilier Family in Warwickshire.

We took the opportunity to ask our Vice President, Colonel Richard Cariss ,to present Barney Barnes ,the former Band Master of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers ( Warwickshire ) with a well deserved Regimental Medal


The Regimental Dinner Club of The Royal Warwickshire Regiment (VIth Foot) was established in 1876 when the first dinner was held at the "Ship and Turtle" in Leadenhall Street, London in June of that year and the dinner has taken place annually, except when wars have intervened.
Membership is open to Regular Commission Officers who served in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment or The Royal Warwickshire Fusiliers and officers having commanded the Territorial Army battalions of these Regiments. Also eligible are Regular Officers of other Corps who have been permanently attached to regular battalions of both Regiments and officers of other Regiments who fought with the Royal Warwickshire Regiment in wartime.
Officers having a close connection with the Regiments may be offered Honorary Membership at the discretion of The Committee.
The annual subscription is £5.00.
The Club Members, and usually their Ladies, meet annually for black tie dinner in the Judge's Dining Room of The Shire Hall in Warwick in April. However, this framework is subject to variation in alternate years.
