Great War Fusiliers remembered at Manchester Piccadilly
The Fusiliers were invited by Virgin Trains to take part in a ceremony to rededicate a memorial to the 87 railway workers who died serving inthe Great War. Twelve of these were Lancashire Fusiliers.
The new stone memorial replaced the original memorial plaque, missing since the 1960s. The ceremony took place on Platform 10 of Piccadilly Station, Manchester and was well supported by the Regiment. The Association Standards were on parade, supported by members of the Salford and Oldham Branches. The Lancashire Corps of Drums provided the Drum Major and a drummer in full uniform and the Lancashire Band provided the bugler.
The Regimental Recruiting Team was present, as was the Fusilier Museum. The Lancashire Area Secretary laid a wreath on behalf of the Regiment.
