The Kings (Liverpool Regiment)   The increase to the army on the outbreak of Monmouth’s rebellion led to the formation of this regiment by Lord Ferrars, and it was first named the “Princess Anne of Denmark’s Regiment of Foot.”  Its early history is remarkable for the stout resistance made by Colonel Beaumont and Captains Packe, Orme, Post, Cook, and Pastor to the attempted packing of their companies with Irish Roman Catholic recruits.  This occurred at Portsmouth, and these “Portsmouth captains” were removed to Windsor Castle for trial, and were dismissed the service; but the colonel was reinstated by William 3rd.  In the Irish campaign it fought at Carrickfergus, the Boyne, Limerick, Cork, and Kinsale; and in 1702, when Princess Anne of Denmark became Queen, the “Queen’s Regiment” embarked for the Continent, and saw service at Kaiserswerth, the siege of Venloo, Ruremonde, Liege, Huy, Limburg, Landau, Sandvilet, Menin, Ath, Lisle, Tournay, Mons, Pont-a-Vendin, Douay, Bethune, Aire, St. Venant, and Bordeaux, and the battles od Schellenberg, Blenheim, Ramillies, Oudenarde, Malplaquet, and Arleux.  In the Jacobite rising of 1715 it shared in the disaster at Bumblane, and the following year received the new title of the “King’s Regiment of Foot,” with the badge of the white horse of Hanover on a red field, and the motto “Nec aspera terrent”; but the latter was not placed on the colours until 1846.    The king’s was at Dettingen and Fomtenoy (1743-45); at Falkirk and Culloden (1746); at Roucoux and Val (1746-47); at Warburg, Zierenburg, Campen, Kirch Denkern, Eimbeck, Groebenstein, and Cassel (1760-62); at the Cedars and Fort Stannix, in Canada (1776-77); at Nimeguen (1794); and in the Egyptian campaign of 1801, at Aboukir, Alexandria, and Cairo.  The 8th took part in the expedition to Copenhagen in 1807, and to the West Indies in 1809, when Martinique was captured; and then took an active part in the campaign of 1813-14, fighting at Ogdenburg-when two colours were captured-Fort George, Sackett’s Harbour, Stoney Creek, Forty-Mile Creek, Beaver Dams, Black Rock, Buffalo, Chippawa, Niagara, Fort Erie, Snake Hill, and Plattsburg, for which good services the word “Niagara” was placed on the colours.  During the Mutiny the 1st battalion was in India, and did good work at Dehli, at Bolundshuhur and Alighur, at Agra, Lucknow, and Cawnpore, and the operations in Oude.  A second battalion, raised in 1756, became the 63rd; another, raised in 1804 and disbanded in 1815, was in the Walcheren Expedition, and was in Canada from 1809 to 1814.  During the winter of the latter year six companies marched on snow- shoes through the roads from New Brunswick to Quebec, and served at Plattsburg.  The present 2nd battalion was raised in 1858, and added “Peiwar Kotal” and “Afghanistan, 1878-80” to the “honours,” for gallant services in that war under Sir Frederick Roberts. It also served with Prendergast in Burmah.  The scarlet uniform had originally yellow facings, altered to royal blue in 1715, also when the badge of the white horse was added.  The white horse, with the regiment mental name and title laurelled, is on the button, and on the helmet and waist-plate (with the motto); the white horse and Garter is worn on the forage- cap.  The tunic collars have the Lancaster rose, with 2King’s” below it.  Though not entitled “Royal,” the officers’ forage- caps have the scarlet band.  The badges are the royal cipher within the Garter, crowned, the white horse within the Garter, crowned, and the Sphinx with “Egypt.”  The lion is also used as a collar-badge.  It is the only regiment that has Old English lettering for its badges.  The two Militia battalions were formed from the 2nd Royal Lancashire battalion, and the men wear on their forage- caps the “rose” within a wreath.  The Volunteer battalions are all Lancashire regiments with the exception of that from the Isle of Man (scarlet and blue), which is attached.  They are the 1st (green and black), the 5th and 18th (green and scarlet), the 13th, 15th, and 19th (scarlet and blue).  The only nickname is the “King’s,” or, in the last century, the “King’s Hanoverian White Horse.”  The depot was in Warrington..

Chindits landing at Broadway, Burma, 5th / 6th March 1944 by David Rowlands.


Chindits landing at Broadway, Burma, 5th / 6th March 1944 by David Rowlands.

During the Second World War, a division of troops was specially trained in Commando methods to infiltrate behind the Japanese lines in Burma. They became known as Chindits, the name given to them by their leader, Major-General Orde Wingate. In March 1944, a plan was formed to land them by air in the jungle. Two landing sites were identified, but immediately before take-off one was reported to be obstructed by logs, and therefore the expedition landed at the site code-named Broadway. 26 C47 Dakota transport aircraft of the US 1st Air Commando took off in the evening, each one towing two Waco gliders. 37 of these arrived at Broadway. 30 men were killed and 33 injured as the gliders bumped and swerved in the jungle clearing that first night. Almost all the gliders were damaged or destroyed as they hit obstacles or crashed into each other in the darkness. Men were running all over the field, shouting instructions and trying to clear the runway of wreckage. Often, those trying to help woun.........

Sergeant D. Jones Directing The Survivors Of A Platoon After The Officer Had Been Killed.


Sergeant D. Jones Directing The Survivors Of A Platoon After The Officer Had Been Killed.

The platoon to which Sergeant D. Jones of the Liverpool Regiment, belonged was ordered to a forward position, and during the advance came under heavy machine gunfire, the officer being killed and the platoon suffering heavy losses. Sergeant Jones led forward the remainder, occupied the position, and held it for two days and two nights without food or water, until relieved. On the second day he drove back three counter attacks, inflicting heavy losses. It was due entirely to his resource and example that his men retained confidence and held to their post. He was awarded the V.C. for his most conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty.

Lance Corporal tombs dragging back a severely wounded man by means of a rifle sling placed round his own neck and the mans body.


Lance Corporal tombs dragging back a severely wounded man by means of a rifle sling placed round his own neck and the mans body.

Seeing wounded men lying about one hundred yards in front of the British trenches at Rue du Bois, on June 16th 1915, Lance Corporal Joseph tombs, of the 1st Battalion, The Kings (Liverpool Regiment) crawled out repeatedly under a very heavy shell and machine gun fire to rescue them. He brought back four men. One of them was so severely wounded that unless he had been immediately attended to he must have died. Lance Corporal tombs therefore placed a rifle sling round his own neck and round the mans body, and in this way dragged him back to the trenches. He was awarded the V.C. for most conspicuous gallantry.

Private T. Doswell Rescuing An Officer From A Mine In Which He Lay Unconscious.

When Private T. Doswell, of the 3rd battalion, Liverpool Regiment (attached 1st Battalion), was on duty outside a mine, near Cuinchy, on November 3rd 1915, an officer who was gassed came out of the mine, and said that another officer was lying unconscious inside. Private Doswell immediately went down the mine, followed by another man, who however, turned back at the bottom of the ladder. Private Doswell went on about twenty yards to where he found the officer lying unconscious. Unaided, he dragged him back to the foot of the ladder and helped to carry him up. Afterwards he reported himself suffering from gas poisoning. For his great courage and resource Doswell was awarded the D.C.M.
