Strange

we termed ourselves Lancashires Armoured Regiment but it seems not one of those lads (RIP) came from that area

Give my respects to them all

Trev

I may be wrong, but I believe that the Regiment recruited in the south of England before they came to Lancashire.

I think the regiments recruited all over. It was when they Zoned recruiting areas the Majority in our regiment were from Lancashire so thats why they were given Lancashire.
