The Commander’s Page
Welcome to our friends, both old
and new, and the many supporters that have heard of us one way or
I would like to thank everybody who sent us donations throughout
the last year. You have made our job a lot easier, and we can now get more
veterans gravesites marked. When we can find no others to mark, we shall then
attempt to get the gravesites that are in need of repair repaired. We shall be
looking to you for your help in making this all possible.
thank you goes out to Mr. G. Lewis, of New Bern, North Carolina, for his
donation to our marker fund of $10.00. Also to the Southern Partisan, in South
Carolina, for helping to get our name and goals out to all the various people
that have never heard of the Confederate States Allied-Europe. Thank
A personal thank you goes out to all the SCV Camps that have in some
way helped us, and those Camps which saw us as a worthwhile cause, and have
joined us as Associate members, such as: The Joseph B Kershaw Camp #82, in South
Carolina., and not forgetting: The Captain William Mc.Kinney Irion Camp #1799,
in Oregon. This shows that they have faith in us and what we are trying to do
for Southern Heritage here in the United Kingdom.
Our many supporters
throughout the whole of Dixieland who have donated the much needed CWV markers
(Confederate War Veteran) and the grave marker flags to be placed in the grave
markers, we are truly grateful to you all.
And to the editor of the
Joseph B Kershaw Camp, Joseph. You alone have earned the greatest of praise for
everything you have done for the members of the CSA-E, and I personally salute
And to. the lady in Devine, Tx. Thank you for your very gracious
donation of grave markers, and for allowing us all to become friends.
let us not forget our flag manufacturer, who is also an Honourary member of the
CSA-E Mr. J. Davis, (What a great surname!) of Cartersville, GA. We are looking
forward to seeing the first flag of the CSA-E. The next flag to be made shall be
that of the Russian command.
And we must certainly not forget Mrs.
Taylor, of Oregon, for setting us up with our very own website, thank you very
much. And, Mr. A.Jay Skii, of Va., for supplying some very good flag designs.
Both the 2 above people are Honourary members and good friends.
also like to thank my two European Cmdrs, Stanislav Zenov, of the Russian
command & Max Popov, of the Ukrainian command for their loyalty to the
And we can’t forget my Adjutant/Editor, etc., etc., John Collier.
Without him the CSA-E might never have taken off. Glad you were there,
We have our own Research Officer in Arkansas, Jess N. Bons, II.
Because of his great help, he was enrolled as an: American National Member of
Dixie. Keep up the good work, Jess.
If 1 have missed anybody out, please

April. April has been nominated as the month that
the CSA—E have chosen for Confederate Heritage Month in Britain. April has been
chosen for a couple of reasons, the first being: April l2th, 1861, the firing on
Fort Sumpter, and the second: The same date has been used to signify the
official rebirth of the CSA—E.
On April 15th, the flag of the State of
Georgia will be flown from the flag staff on the Cheltenham Boys College
premises, in honour of a Confederate Veteran, Col. H.W.Feilden. who attended
this college way back in the mid—1800’s. His life consisted of Military and
exploring the world. It is because of this that the college granted permission
for the flag to be flown. I thank them for Confederates the world over. THANK

Somerset Studies Library, in Taunton, Somerset, UK, for allowing a file to be
kept on the CSA-E....THANK YOU.
