On 1st July 1958 the East Lancashire and South Lancashire Regiments amalgamated to form The Lancashire Regiment (Prince of Wales’s Volunteers).

In its short life the Regiment served in Hong Kong, Germany, Swaziland, Cyprus, and Malta. However it is justifiably best remembered for the distinguished role it played in 1967, during the final months of the bitter anti-terrorist campaign in Aden, where its officers and men received more operational and gallantry awards than any other unit.

On 25th March 1970 the Regiment amalgamated with The Loyal Regiment (North Lancashire), to form The Queen’s Lancashire Regiment.

In 2006 the Queen’s Lancashire Regiment was amalgamated with the King’s Own Royal Border Regiment and the King’s Regiment to form the present-day Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment.
