London Regiment Royal Fusilier battalions

Recommended Posts

Those battalions of the London Regiment that have Royal Fusiliers in their titles are described by LLT as being "affiliated" to the regular Royal Fusiliers.

 

I'd be interested to know what form this affiliation took?

I think that the Royal Fusiliers provided the permanent cadre of these battalions - adjutants, acting sergeant-majors and sergeant-instructors. The Royal Fusiliers had no Territorial battalions and the London Regiments had no Regular battalions. The RF and the first four battalions of the Londons shared a common geographical link to the City of London.

Thank you Ron, I thought it may have been something of the sort.  Having more than once had to carefully explain the way the titles worked in the two regiments, I found myself stymied by a question asking about the meaning of affiliation!

 

I'm grateful.
