An experienced war memorial stonemason has been appointed; he has previously produced work at the National Arboretum and at the Somme and is highly respected for the quality of his work.Meetings have been held with the Arboretum Authorities who have agreed the general size, shape and design of the new memorial.There will be those who do not like the design of the memorial, the size the shape and so on.Where I am sure there is common ground is that our Fusiliers who have lost their lives deserve a lasting and fitting memorial at the Arboretum and the small stone that is there currently does need replacing.Lt Andy Wellum-Kent briefs the Bn on the Battle of Minden in a 21st Century style Change of Role.The First Battalion took over the Land Warfare Centre Battle Group role in August 2009.RHQ/RRF/1363 19th September 2011 OFFICERS ANNUAL REGTL DINNER The Officers Annual Regimental Dinner will be held at HM The Tower of London at 1930 hours .
