Who Can Join?
The Liverpool Branch has been reformed to recognise the fact that there are 2 regular and 1 Army Reserve battalions in the Regiment formed in 2007 from the Kings Own Royal Border Regiment the King’s Regiment and Queens Lancashire Regiment. 
The membership of the Branch is open to anyone who served in any battalion of The King’s Regiment, widows, widowers, and partners of deceased veterans. Associate membership is available to veterans who have listed affiliations with the Regiment.
What Do We Do?
The Branch exists to support the Association in:
  • Fostering the esprit de corps among serving and former members and keep them in touch with each other.
  • Preserving the traditions of the Regiment.
  • Encouraging recruitment.
  • Assisting serving and former members of the Regiment to find work.
The Branch provides a means of help and support to its members particularly those who find themselves in need and have nowhere else to turn.
The Branch runs a programme of events throughout the year both commemorative and social. New ideas for such events are always welcome. The Branch is run by a committee elected by the membership. New Members are always welcome.

I have received confirmation that a Service of Remembrance will be held in Liverpool on Sunday 14th November for the first time since 2019. However due to the ongoing works on Lime Street and the area surrounding St Georges Hall, the service will be held in Liverpool Cathedral, St James’ Mount, off Upper Duke Street, Liverpool, L1 7AZ. - MORE INFO >>

After a summer recess, the Northern Ireland Coroner’s Inquests into deaths during ‘The Troubles’ are resuming.   These new inquests will address events in 1972.   In supporting the Coroner and any veterans involved, the Army has also created, in Army HQ, the Army Operational Legal Branch (AOLB) as the focus for all legacy issues.   MORE INFO >>

NORTHERN IRELAND PLAQUE

Some of you may be familiar with the story of the regimental plaque made in Hong Kong which carries the names of seven of our Kingsmen killed in Northern Ireland in 1972. Graham Walker found the plaque in the store room at Ardwick Barracks along with several MFO boxes of stuff and furniture that was going to be 'skipped'. MORE INFO>>

A MESSAGE FROM THE COMMITTEE
At our recent meeting the committee all agreed that the newsletter should not be uploaded to the web site and should be restricted to subscribed members only via email. We are hoping that we will be contacted by those who previously received the electronic edition by email or by viewing online and have left the association, and who might reconsider and re-join.  We are also hopeful that those who viewed the Newsletter on the web site, may contact us and might be persuaded to join.
It is only a with the support of subscribed members paying for the Newsletter and kindly making donations, that the association is able to survive.
