The Duke of Lancaster's Regimental Memorial dedication


The Queen, Colonel-in-Chief, The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment, today unveiled a memorial to the fallen at the National Memorial Arboretum, Staffordshire.

Her Majesty unveiled a commemorative plaque during the Service of Dedication, and laid a wreath at the new memorial. After the ceremony, The Queen met Officers of the regiment, wounded veterans and the families of the fallen.

The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment has strong associations with the North West of England. It 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. The new bronze memorial, a heraldic 'Lion of England’, commemorates those who have died whilst serving with the Regiment since its formation.

The National Memorial Arboretum is the UK's year-round centre of Remembrance; a place which honours the fallen, recognises service and sacrifice, and fosters pride in the UK. It is a living and lasting memorial. There are more than 300 dedicated memorials across the 150 acre site.
