Save the 2nd Battalion, The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers
Tuesday 15 October and the 2nd Battalion, The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (2RRF) marched for a second time on Parliament. It was October 2012 when 2RRF’s cause was debated in the Houses of Parliament and the Government was defeated in the vote that followed. Letters from the MoD confirm that 2RRF, was not one of the original five regular infantry battalions to be disbanded – these original five all having poorer recruitment and retention records. However, the decision was made to retain one of the five and 2RRF was selected to take its place despite being the best-recruited battalion in the British Army.
Mary has been working hard alongside John Baron MP to fight to save this Regiment.
