are on the
Battalion Northumberland Fusiliers
you are searching for information on an individual
who served in the Northumberland Fusiliers (NF)
during the First World War, you should bear in
mind that this Regiment had raised in excess
of 50 Battalions by 1918. This website is devoted
to just one such Battalion, the 4th.
Regiment was principally a regionalised recruiting
and training organisation, not a fighting unit
such as a Battalion, Brigade, Division or
Corps. Rarely if ever did the all Battalions,
within a Regiment, serve or fight as part of
one unit. The two regular NF Battalions were
in different Army Divisions and in 1908, when
the 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th Territorial
Battalions were raised they formed part of a
Territorial Division. Numerous 'New Army' Battalions
were raised during the war and information on
these can be found at www.1914-1918.net/northfus.htm
section provides links to websites
with information on the other NF Battalions.
Please tell me if I have overlooked a good website!
