The Loyal Regiment (North Lancashire) (until 1921 known as The Loyal North Lancashire Regiment) was an infantry regiment of the line in the British Army from 1881 to 1970. Today, the Regiment's lineage is continued by the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment. During WW1 the Loyals joined the Tigris Corps in its operations to relieve the Anglo-Indian garrison besieged at Kut, fought against the Ottoman Forces and served in what is now Iraq. The Loyals were dispatched to serve during the Chanak Crisis. In the inter War years the Loyals served in China during the Warlord Era and the Chinese Civil War, protecting the legation in Peking and the international settlements at Tientsin, Canton, and most importantly Shanghai. Upon the commencement of WW2 hostilities in 1939 the Loyals fought in Europe.
