The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment

The Regimental Family is wide. It includes our Cadet Detachments, Regimental Association Branches, affiliated ships, allied regiments, and our civic community.

The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment is the Infantry regiment of the North-West of England. It consists of two Regular Army Battalions (1 LANCS and 2 LANCS) and one Army Reserve Battalion (4 LANCS).

The Regiment was formed on 1st July 2006, by the amalgamation of the King's Own Royal Border Regiment, the King's Regiment and the Queen's Lancashire Regiment.

Her Majesty the Queen, the Duke of Lancaster, is our Colonel in Chief.

We are known as the "Lions of England".

The Regimental Band is based at Townsend Avenue, Liverpool. It is made up of Army Reserve musicians. The band plays at prestigious military events throughout the North-West and wider afield. They parade Thursday evenings 7.30pm-9.30pm.

Join us and you'll spend your spare time in both band rehearsals and training in Infantry skills to the same standards of Regular Army soldiers.
