Welcome to the website of the Lancashire Infantry Museum, the largest Regimental archive and the premier centre for military historical research in the North of England.
The Museum is housed in the heart of Lancashire, in the traditional home of the old county infantry regiments in Fulwood Barracks, Preston.
We preserve for posterity the achievements, records and artefacts of those historic infantry regiments of Lancashire which now form part of The Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment, created in 2006 by the amalgamation of The Kings Own Royal Border, Kings and Queen’s Lancashire Regiments. We are also proud to be officially responsible for collecting and collating historical material relating to the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment itself.
In all we cherish the heritage of 120 separate units, including the 59 battalions formed by our antecedent Lancashire regiments during the First World War, and all associated Militia, Rifle Volunteers, Territorials, Home Guard and Cadet units.
