Yesterday was a big day for the Fusiliers – it’s not everyday you get a train named after you! ‘The Fusiliers’ is now a Virgin East Coast Train that will run between London and Newcastle bearing our name with pride.

I would like to thank David Horne of Virgin for making it possible and our own Major Chris Hall and Cpl Vicki Cooper who came up with the idea and then drove the project through over 3 tricky years. A great 50th birthday present – thank you Chris and Vicki.
