The sight that greeted visitors to the Didcot's Great Western Society '1970s Shedbash' diesel gala on its first day of three on 25th May 2013 sees 33108, 55019, D9009 and 18000. Below the marker lights on 55019 May be seen a sign in recognition of the brutal death of Lee Rigby, a serving British soldier, which happened in London a couple of days prior to the gala weekend. The sign states â??Remembering Fellow Fusilier, Drummer Lee Rigby on 2nd Battalion Royal Regiment of Fusiliersâ?? (Lee Rigby was a member of an English Fusilier regiment, 55019 is named â??Royal Highland Fusilierâ?? though that regiment is now part of the Scottish Regiment, hence the reference to a â??Fellow Fusilierâ??).
