The Loyal Regiment (North Lancashire) (until 1921 known as the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment) was a Line Infantry Regiment of the British Army that was in existence from 1881 to 1970. In 1970, the Regiment was amalgamated with the Lancashire Regiment to form the Queen's Lancashire Regiment which was, in 2006, amalgamated with the King's Own Royal Border Regiment and the King's Regiment (Liverpool and Manchester) to form the Duke of Lancaster Regiment (King's, Lancashire and Border). The Loyals were one of seven County Regiments recruiting in Lancashire. Their depot was at Preston, and the Regimental district also included the towns of Bolton, Chorley, Farnworth, Hindley, and the Isle of Man. The Regiment saw much action during the Boer War, WW1 & WW2. Colonel Thomas Myles Sandys (12 May 1837 – 18 October 1911) was a British army officer and Conservative Party politician who sat in the House of Commons from 1885 to 1911. He was born in Blackheath, and was the only son of Captain Thomas Sandys of the Royal Navy. Following education at Shrewsbury School, he was commissioned as an officer in the 73rd Bengal Native Infantry, a military unit of the Honourable East India Company. After fighting in the Indian Rebellion of 1857 he exchanged into the 7th (or Royal Fusiliers) Regiment of Foot, part of the regular British Army. He was to serve in the 7th Foot for twenty years, retiring with the rank of captain. He moved to the family's ancestral home, Graythwaite Hall, near Ulverston, Lancashire. He continued his association with the armed forces as honorary colonel of the 3rd (Militia) Battalion of the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment, a position he held until 1897. He was a staunch Protestant, becoming Grand Master of the Loyal Orange Lodge of England and was a deputy lieutenant for the County of Lancashire. In 1852, he leased the mining rights of his land at Roanhead to Kennedy Brothers. The mines were the among the most productive in the area and worked until 1942. The Redistribution of Seats Act 1885 created the new constituency of Bootle, and Sandys was elected as the first member of parliament for the seat. He held the seat at subsequent elections, either being elected unopposed, or by a large majority. He resigned his seat in March 1911.He died later that year, at his London home, 87 Jermyn Street, aged 74.

Irish Free State Model 1927 Vickers Steel Helmet With Chin Strap, Liner & Irish Free State Badge. HE 866 - HE 866
This is an excellent Irish Free State P1927 Steel helmet and badge. The Vickers helmet, in spite of its British manufacture, its ‘German’ style rendered it the butt of much anti-Irish British propaganda. During the 1920s the newly formed Irish Defence Forces began looking for a steel helmet. At first the French Adrian model, named after its inventor, August-Louis Adrian, was tested on a limited scale but was found to be unsatisfactory. Eventually it was decided to choose the German helmet used in the First World War, and in November 1926 the Irish government approached the German consulate requesting a modern sample. The German Foreign Office’s reply, dated 30 December 1926, advised that the export of steel helmets was prohibited under the terms laid down by the Versailles Treaty, and for that reason they were unable to comply. So the Irish Free State had to look elsewhere. An order for the helmets was placed with Vickers & Co. Ltd, London, and the design was to be based on the German pattern worn during the Great War. The German consulate in Dublin reported to the Foreign Office in Berlin on 16 August 1927 to the effect that Vickers & Co. had been asked to deliver the helmets ‘to be tested for their expediency during the autumn manoeuvres next year’. The helmet produced was similar to the German one except that the sides were more gently sloped and it was painted a dark shade of green. The most relevant features were the two small brackets affixed to the front to hold an officer’s pattern cap badge painted black and worn by all ranks when the occasion required. On the inside rim of the centre of the rear was a die-stamped inscription ‘V Ltd.’ with a serial number. The interior fittings were completed in Dublin by ‘T. Smith & Son, Dublin’. This helmet is numbered "7224" (Approx 10,000 were made) followed by "V Ltd P 167/27" stamped inside at the rear. It has the three tongue liner pads with draw string and leather liner band. The helmet is fitted with Irish Free State badge. The helmet is in very good undamaged condition. The leather chin strap is complete with buckle. The helmet is approx. UK size 7. The price includes UK delivery. HE 866
