The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
Sad day for the old Border Regiment (Cumberland & Westmoreland)(34th and 55th Foot) who amalgamated with the King's Own Royal Regiment(Lancaster)(4th Foot) in 1959 to form the King's Own Border Regiment, who, as far as I'm aware, never regarded themselves as a Lancashire regiment
I think the title Royal Lancaster Regiment might be more appropriate.
A shame for the Cumbrians, but all the weight of the NW recruiting area is in Lancashire (Manchester, Liverpool and Bolton).
Even money one of the two battalions of this new regiment will be chopped within 10 years.
Kings Div = shambles.
Not forgeting Carlisle, Barrow, Workington and Fiji
