Beith joins fight for the Fusiliers

FAMILIES campaigning to save the Fusiliers have been backed by MP Sir Alan Beith.

Sir Alan teamed up with veterans and their supporters to march on Downing Street last week and hand in a petition to save the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers.

It follows a decision to disband the battalion, despite it being the best recruited one in the British Army.
