We are researching the stories of the soldiers that served with the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment during the First World War. This website is a place to share the stories and preserve the memory of these men. We will also include other articles of interest about the Regiment during the War of 1914-18.
We are researching soldiers from all Battalions of the Loyal North Lancs Regiment in WW1.
We began this website in July 2012, and so far have been able to tell the stories of over 500 soldiers. We are working hard to ensure that these brave men are not forgotten, and as always we appreciate your support.
The photo above is the farewell concert performed by the band of the 4th Battalion Loyal North Lancashire Regiment at Preston Market Place on 12th August 1914. The 1st Battalion were leaving for Le Havre (France), they landed the next day.
We are keen to find more photographs and postcards of soldiers from the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment. If you have any pictures that we can use in our gallery please let us know.
