Kings Own sweetheart badges

Postby plbramham » Tue Jul 24, 2012 3:44 pm

The Kings Own Royal Lancaster Regiment (originally 4th Regiment of Foot), amalgamated with The Border Regiment in 1959 to form The King’s Own Royal Border Regiment.During the First World War there is much evidence of men being transferred between The King’s Own and the Borders. The recruitment area of the two regiments overlapped considerably south of Kendal, and on the Furness peninsula – Ulverston/Barrow etc. which were part of Lancashire prior to the creation of Cumbria in 1973.
