This Day In History

  • 1918 With drums beating and colours flying, 1st Loyal North Lancashires cross the German frontier to join the British Army of Occupation in Germany, based around Cologne.
  • 1945 Colours of the 2nd Loyals, recently recovered from Singapore, where they had lain undiscovered in bank vaults since the surrender of the city and the capture of the battalion in 1942, are ceremonially paraded through Preston. Salute is taken by the Colonel of the Regiment, Brigadier J P D Underwood DSO, who as a young officer had been present when this set of colours was presented in Mauritius in 1909.

PLEASE HELP US.

WE NEED YOUR HELP

Unless we can secure additional funding, the survival of the Lancashire Infantry Museum is in doubt.

The Museum costs a great deal of money to run.

Only our traditional home in historic Fulwood Barracks is provided for us, beyond which we receive very limited official support.

We receive no official funding whatsoever for the preservation, maintenance, development and display of the collection and archives.

All work on collating the largest regimental archive in the United Kingdom, and dealing with the many hundreds of research requests which we receive, is carried out by our highly-dedicated team of volunteers, who donate many hours of their time, and without whom the Museum could not operate.

PLEASE HELP US TO PRESERVE THE MEMORY, AND TO CONTINUE TELLING THE STORY, OF LANCASHIRE’S SOLDIERS
