The Royal Welch Fusiliers in America

Commemorating the service of the 23rd Regiment of Foot during the American Revolution.

Members are located in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, and California.

Thomas Pieper 

1943 – 2024

Tom, for those not aware was a founder of the BAR’s Northwest Dept.  He researched and literally wrote the book on the history of Fort Laurens. Tom formerly commanded the Regiment as Major, and had been a dedicated member
since the early 1970s. He was part of the contingent from the RWFIA that was invited to participate in the tercentenary of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers in Wales in 1989. Indeed, the tradition of excellence he helped set for the RWFIA was instrumental in making that invitation possible. Tom was also a published author.
 
His love of history and devotion to the Regiment was inspirational to many in the Midwest reenacting community
and across the country.

He will be remembered and sorely missed.
