Welcome to The Duke of Lancaster’s Own Yeomanry


The Regimental Collect

Almighty God, in whom we put our trust,
grant us your servants of the Duke of Lancaster's Own
Yeomanry the gifts of courage and skill, endurance and
comradeship. These we dedicate in the service of our
Sovereign and Country, and pray your blessings upon all our
endeavours, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

You are entering the online archives of The Duke of Lancaster's Own Yeomanry 

This is a compilation of material gathered from personal collections, regimental and squadron sources and from the Museum of Lancashire. The material has been selected, processed and posted by Lieutenant Colonel John Tustin TD (webmaster).

A special thank you is extended to all those who have provided material especially Captain Jimmy Aspinall, PSAO DLOY Squadron, Wigan and Dr Stephen Bull of the Museum of Lancashire, Preston.

Anyone with material to offer for inclusion on the website is asked to contact the webmaster ( dloyeomanry@gmail.com ).

Anyone wishing to donate items to the Regimental Museum is asked to contact the webmaster for the present as the museum is currently closed. Hopefully, "the museum issue" will be resolved in 2020, and more guidance will be published here.
