The 4th Battalion, Duke of Lancaster's Regiment

The 4th Battalion has nine locations spread over the North West with its headquarters based in Preston. It is part of 42nd Infantry Brigade and is a light role infantry Reserve battalion. The battalion specialises in dismounted close combat operations using light vehicles and foot and is capable of operating in a variety of terrain; with its primary responsibility of supporting the 2nd Battalion with a rifle company.

The last 12 months have been a very busy period for the Battalion. Increases in opportunities available to the reserves, have seen members of the Battalion deploy to Italy, Australia, America, Latvia and the Falklands. The battalion has also provided officers and soldiers to support 2 LANCS short term training teams around the world, in particular to train the defence forces of Burundi and Uganda.

There has also been a considerable amount of adventurous training and sport including trekking expeditions to Iceland and Italy plus sailing, skiing and winter sports.

In October 2016, the battalion will deploy to Cyprus for a 6 month U.N. tour as part of Op Tosca.

All our units parade on Tuesday evenings between 7.30pm and 9.30pm, feel free to drop in at one of our locations. For more information on 4 LANCS please call 01772 260655.
