Our Colonel in Chief formally opened the 5th Battalion’s new headquarters on Saturday 29 October 2016. It proved to be a superb day, with HRH visiting several exhibition stands, including the Northumbria Cadets, the Regimental Association and assorted support weapons stands.

Whilst he was there, he took the opportunity to re-dedicate the Boer War memorial to those Northumberland Fusiliers and Durham Light Infantryman who fell during the conflict. Overall, a fantastic day! My congratulations to CO and all ranks FIFTH FUSILIERS!
