This Day In History

1812 Peninsular War. The 2 / 30th Foot (later 1st East Lancashires), as part of the 5th Division, hold the crossing of the river Carrion at Vlilamuriel against the attack of General Maucune for most of the day. This allows Wellington to continue his retreat from Burgos unmolested.
1854 Battle of Balaklava. 80 men from the 30th and 47th Regiments stand to their arms on the flanks of the 93rd Highlanders - the famed "Thin Red Line" - and play their full part in hurling back the Russian cavalry.

Photo Archives

Duke-of-Lancaster's-CrestTE

The Museum holds a treasure-trove of thousands of mainly-photographic images which tell the story of our regiments as they served across the world. Most are unpublished and many are unique.

The archive is vast and the parallel tasks of cataloguing and digitising it will continue for years. As the work progresses the Museum will publish selections as Archive Collections of DVD discs. They will be of interest to Regimental veterans, historians, researchers, authors and family descendants.

All funds raised go towards the preservation and maintenance of the Museum.
