5 FUSILIERS take over Head of Establishment responsibility for the Castle Armoury Army Reserve Centre in Bury on 1 Apr 2020.

It’s taken a long time to achieve by the CO, Lt Col S Burton MBE, with strong support from HQ NW and NW RFCA.  Both the Col of the Regt, Maj Gen PAE Nanson CB CBE and Col Lancashire Brig J Swift OBE, also helped progress the takeover through their contacts across the Army.

With a growing FUSILIERS presence in Bury (almost a full Company now) the FUSILIER flag will fly over Castle Armoury ARC from 1 April 2020 – and not before time.
