Sunday memorial march to raise funds for Warwick Fusiliers Museum

MEMBERS of the Royal Warwickshire Re-enactment Group will be marching between the Kenilworth and Warwick War Memorials this Sunday.

The event will raise funds for the Warwick-based Royal Regiment of Fusiliers Museum.

Those marching will be wearing full uniforms and equipment as carried by men of the regiment when they landed in Normandy on D-Day – June 6, 1944.

The regiment was among the oldest in the British Army and has been a part of the county, and the country’s heritage for over 350 years.

One of the last few physical reminders of the Royal Warwicks is the Regimental Museum – currently being moved from St John’s House to Court House in central Warwick.

Visitors to the new venue, once complete, can explore the rich history, famous sons and personal accounts of those who served as a Royal Warwick.

To keep the memory of the regiment alive, the re-enactment group displays at events around the Midlands, as well as attending D-Day commemorations in Normandy

And on Sunday, members will march from Kenilworth War Memorial, at 10am, to Warwick, arriving at around 12.30pm.

A show and tell display will be set up in the Market Square in Warwick, before a second march to the Warwick War Memorial for a wreath laying ceremony.

All are welcome to join in and march alongside the event.
