Museum At The Shires 2017

Every year, hundreds of veterans of the Queen’s Lancashire Regiment  get together for their annual Shires Reunion near Blackpool. In 2017 well over 400 veterans and their families attended, with most of them camping for up to four days on-site. Once again, the Museum was there to support them. Serious question: Can there be any other regiment which can inspire this level of support from its veterans on a regular annual basis?
