Since the UK Army started to amalgamate regiments and form their New
and Improved Army --- I have been assured by a UK Army Staff Officer
that the museums will stay the same and will not be touched.
For example ---
The KING'S REGIMENT has two fine museums, one in Liverpool for the
Regimental collection and one in Tameside, Greater Manchester for
the Manchester Regiment Collection.
The NEW Regiment
The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment formed from the King's Own Royal
Border Regiment, the King's Regiment, and the Queen's Lancashire
Regiment on 1st July 2006. For more details --- visit
The 8th (KINGS) Regiment  is alive at the Liverpool Museum ---
but as Commander Hobbs has pointed out they are not that interested
or educated in the North American War known to us as the War of
1812 --- the King's Regiment flaunt their involvement in the Zulu War
