By Colonel B.R. Mullaly
First published 1952, this edition 1958. From the formation of Phillipp’s Regiment in 1717, and world travels as the 40th and 82nd Regiments, through to final amalgamation in 1958 with the East Lancashire Regiment to form the Lancashire Regiment (Prince of Wales Volunteers), the South Lancashire Regiment has an incredible history. Whether against the French at Quebec or in the Peninsular Wars, the Americans at Chew House or Eutaw Springs, or storming the Normandy beaches on D-day, the South Lancashire Regiment has fought with bravery, courage and professionalism, living up to their motto ‘Ich Dien – I Serve’.
