There have been a couple of posts about this unit in the past and this morning I came across a Regimental plaque to the unit,sadly the top scroll with the regimental name was missing but it Is the first plaque that I can recall seeing with a potted history on the back.

Thanks Griff,

They were formed just before WW2 as a new battery of the Liverpool R.A. unit that had been the Lancashire Hussars but recruiting went so well that it was possible to form a new Regiment.

The lineage in short is on this page: Cavalry Volunteers Lancashire

They were resurrected after the war, still subtitled as (Lancashire Yeomanry).

I think the missing plaque would have been of thin lacquered brass with impressed lettering in black paint which was glued over the blank plastic scroll.
I first saw that type of scroll on an Int Corps plaque in 1979, sure enough both scrolls had dropped of the plaque within a couple of years and had to be glued back on.

Fascinating ! Properly it was in Cheshire (before they bxxxxd up the counties in 1974).
Anyway, the 16th Bn KLR was formed there in 1914 - apparently in the (well known) golf club.
So a 'horse' (of Hanover) was present there long before the cavalry appeared there...

Thanks for the replies,

Wmr,that is most interesting, I saw something similar in the Drill Hall of the Lancashire Artillery Volunteers some time ago.

Leigh, thanks, somewhere I have a photo of a complete plaque but can’t find it at the moment.

Thanks Julian.

And what you can achieve with a colour printer.

Not perfect but shows how it should look.
