My interest in the 25th Battalion Royal Fusiliers (Frontiersmen) stemmed from research
into the military service of my Great Grandfather who, from the details impressed
on his medals, I knew had served with the Royal Fusiliers during the war. Before
my research started I had always assumed, quite wrongly, that his service was in
the trenches of the western front so it was somewhat of a surprise to find he had
actually served with this battalion in the largely forgotten East African theatre
This website is the result of my interest and subsequent research into the 25th Battalion
Royal Fusiliers (Frontiersmen) and is dedicated to those men who served with the
battalion during the Great War 1914-1918.

progress' and I hope to add more material as time permits. Nevertheless I hope you
enjoy what is on here at present.
I am always on the lookout for more information to add to my database of the men
who served with the 25th Battalion Royal Fusiliers. If you have a relative who served
or have any information, photographs, letters, diaries etc. relating to the men of
this battalion then I would very much like to hear from you. The link below can
