After a gap of seven months RHQ is pleased to announce that the Regiment has contracted Lt Col (Retd) Mike McDonald to fill the role of the Area Sec (North) wef from 20 January 2022.

Mike began his career with the 3rd Fusiliers in the mid-70s.  On commissioning he served with the PWRR.  He lives in the NW and many of you will know him well.

Mike is contracted to provide 8 working days per month.  He will manage his allocation of time, but it is aimed that he will be in the Bury office for at least one day a week.  He will be supported by the E1 clerk, Mrs Linsay Pepperell in the office.

This is not the full-time coverage that we would prefer but due to the current recruitment moratorium on recruiting new civil servants the Regimental Council made the decision at the December Council meeting to contract someone to represent RHQ in Lancashire and funding the contract with Regimental funds.

The Colonel of the Regiment RHQ and all Fusiliers welcome Mike back into the Regiment.
