Adrian. Were they really called the Loyal NLR (I would hope they were loyal !) or is this a misprint for Royal ?

The name is correct, my dad was in the regiment, he was a 'D Day Dodger,' he served in North Africa, Italy and finally in Palestine.

Hi Dave,
Ive posted a few more pics of this bunch of pals in Burma. If your grandad isnt amongst them he would certainly have known them !

Great pic Adrian I am also a grandson of Simon Stirrup that Dave mentioned I wondered if you had any more pics of either Loyal north Lancs or Manchester regiment. We have researched Simon's war service and are happy to share the bit we have in common if you would like it?
