    The Loyal Regiment (North Lancashire) (until 1921 known as the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment) was a Line Infantry Regiment of the British Army that was in existence from 1881 to 1970. In 1970, the Regiment was amalgamated with the Lancashire Regiment to form the Queen's Lancashire Regiment which was, in 2006, amalgamated with the King's Own Royal Border Regiment and the King's Regiment (Liverpool and Manchester) to form the Duke of Lancaster Regiment (King's, Lancashire and Border). The Loyals were one of seven County Regiments recruiting in Lancashire. Their depot was at Preston, and the Regimental district also included the towns of Bolton, Chorley, Farnworth, Hindley, and the Isle of Man. The Regiment saw much action during the Boer War, WW1 & WW2. Colonel Thomas Myles Sandys (12 May 1837 – 18 October 1911) was a British army officer and Conservative Party politician who sat in the House of Commons from 1885 to 1911. He was born in Blackheath, and was the only son of Captain Thomas Sandys of the Royal Navy. Following education at Shrewsbury School, he was commissioned as an officer in the 73rd Bengal Native Infantry, a military unit of the Honourable East India Company. After fighting in the Indian Rebellion of 1857 he exchanged into the 7th (or Royal Fusiliers) Regiment of Foot, part of the regular British Army. He was to serve in the 7th Foot for twenty years, retiring with the rank of captain. He moved to the family's ancestral home, Graythwaite Hall, near Ulverston, Lancashire. He continued his association with the armed forces as honorary colonel of the 3rd (Militia) Battalion of the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment, a position he held until 1897. He was a staunch Protestant, becoming Grand Master of the Loyal Orange Lodge of England and was a deputy lieutenant for the County of Lancashire. In 1852, he leased the mining rights of his land at Roanhead to Kennedy Brothers. The mines were the among the most productive in the area and worked until 1942. The Redistribution of Seats Act 1885 created the new constituency of Bootle, and Sandys was elected as the first member of parliament for the seat. He held the seat at subsequent elections, either being elected unopposed, or by a large majority. He resigned his seat in March 1911.He died later that year, at his London home, 87 Jermyn Street, aged 74. He is buried in Brookwood Cemetery (a contemporary image of Sandys is illustrated in image 3). This is an excellent near mint, Victorian Officer's spike topped pre 1902 Home Service blue cloth helmet of the 3rd Militia Battalion Loyal North Lancashire Regiment. It has a metal cross piece, spike and rose bosses supporting a velvet backed chin chain. The front of the helmet bears the original Queen’s Crown Loyal North Lancashire Regiment plate. The helmet is complete with leather sweatband and cloth lining. The helmet is approx. UK size 7. It is contained in its original tin transit case with hinged lid & carry handle. The lid has a brass plate beautifully engraved to ‘Col T. Myles Sandys 3rd Bn Loyal Lanc Reg’. The tin has some of its original Japanned finish. The price for this fine helmet with Tin to a named career Soldier & Volunteer Battalion Officer includes UK delivery. Sn 14432
