As we approach 2014 the Museum reaches another milestone in its history.
The Museum has been telling the story of The Great War since it was
co-located with the Lancaster City Museum in 1929. The Centenary of the
start of the war calls for something special. The Great War Exhibition
will open on Saturday 28th June 2014, being the 100th Anniversary of the
assassination at Sarajevo, on the ground floor of the City Museum. It
will run until mid October covering the school holidays and term time
thus allowing schools to see the exhibition as part of an educational
visit. I suspect much public interest will be generated. Other
supporting activities are planned including talks and tours including
two smaller travelling exhibitions that can ‘go on tour’ in the
Regimental area. Much planning is in hand with funding being sought to
make this exhibition appropriate and meaningful. Please give the
exhibition your support and encouragement.
Meanwhile the work of the Museum continues unabated. We are liaising
with The Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment to see how the Museum can help
with the Regiment particularly at a time of tremendous change for the
Army as a whole. Besides marking the past we must endeavour to adapt and
secure the future.
Our website continues to flourish with webs visitors exceeding 100,000
during 2012. Moreover, with 2014 approaching the number of enquiries
from the Regimental Family and the general public has increased.
Undoubtedly interest has been sparked and I am sure will continue to do
so. Acquisitions continue to be acquired. I remain amazed at the quality
and the condition of the items that are donated many from local
Regimental families. Long may this continue.
Once again this annual report looks back on a busy twelve month period
in the museum. Whilst the number of visitors to the City Museum dropped
to 48,886, visitors to our website and users of our enquiry service both
increased substantially. Once again this reflects the increased use of
the internet which has in turn resulted in the continued expansion of
our website – adding more content covering both the history of the
regiment and items in our collection.
Whilst we continue to assist the family historian in their research of
King’s Own soldiers, it is a pleasing fact that many families see the
museum as an appropriate place to donate their ancestor’s items. Some
terrific items have been gifted, and it is these items which allow the
museum to tell the story of the King’s Own Regiment.
The Story we will tell over the coming years will be focussed upon the
First World War, but we must not forget that there is more to the
Regiment’s fine history than conflict in the early 20th Century. Coming
up are the 70th Anniversaries of events in the Second World War, not
least the disastrous campaign on the Greek island of Leros in November
1943, the last German success of the war. 2014 will see the 70th
Anniversaries of various actions which involved the 1st King’s Own in
Italy, the 2nd King’s Own in Burma and the 107th Regiment in Normandy.
2014 and 2015 also mark the 200th Anniversary of the actions between the
British and United States of America, and of course whilst 2015 marks
the centenary of the bloody battles of the Ypres Salient it is also the
200th Anniversary of the battle of Waterloo.
We are entering a period which will be very busy, but hopefully if we
can raise sufficient resources we can present exhibitions and other
activities to bring these anniversaries to the public.
At the end of this report there are some comments from users of the
museum – these are typical of many received. There is a clear demand for
the services that the museum offers, hopefully this demand will continue
and we will be able to respond to the public’s needs.
The Museum Trustees met in November and discussed various matters and
were briefed by Mr Bruce Jackson, Heritage Manager of Lancashire County
Council on the management arrangement between Lancaster City Council and
the County. The agreement was due to expire on 31st March 2013. A joint
board/task group was to be established formed of elected members from
both the City and County Councils and the first meeting was planned for
The trustees agreed a new Forward Plan and Collection Development Plan
which would be submitted as part of the museum’s renewal application for
Accreditation, the former Museums Registration Scheme, now managed by
Arts Council England.
The Museum was awarded full accreditation under the scheme operated by
Arts Council England.
Charity Statement of Purpose and Public Benefit.
The King’s Own Royal Regiment Museum provides a ‘living’ history of the
character, activities, tradition and history of the British Army and in
particular The King’s Own Royal Regiment, Lancaster. This is achieved
through the preservation, interpretation and display of artefacts,
archives etc for the purposes of historical research, information and
education and the enjoyment of the general public.
The King’s Own Royal Regiment Museum is committed to do what it can to
reduce our impact on the environment. Where possible the museum uses
recycled materials, and certainly great effort is made to re-use
envelopes for both correspondence and sales, this also saves money. The
donation of used padded envelopes may appear to be a very minor thing,
but reduces the packaging costs of museum sales items to almost nil. We
re-use paper, use recycled paper, and recycle all sorts of waste
material from paper and cardboard to tin cans and glass. Writing and
printing on the back of paper is such a simple way to minimise on waste.
Public transport is used where possible and of course the curator is a
The Energy Performance Operational Rating of the City Museum building is
51, which rates the museum as ‘C’. ‘A’ being the most efficient, ‘G’
being the worst, and a rating of 100 would be typical for our type of
building. (The building was rated 52 in the previous year, a drop to 5
would move the museum to a ‘B’. (Certificate Reference Number:
As ever the museum is grateful for the generous support of many people
who help in so many ways. It would be impossible to acknowledge and
thank everyone but some assistance is above and beyond and needs
specific mention. Appreciation goes (in no specific order) to Pat and
David Shackleton; Gaynor Greenwood; Fergus Read; Howard Martin;
Christopher and Gail Knight; Major Max Davison; Major Simon Walton;
Major Phil McNeil; Captain Darren Szymanski; and Martin Evans and Jackie
Britton for their continued support and assistance to the curator. To
those named and to many more – a big thank you for all of you help,
assistance and encouragement.
The curator continues to monitor and take care of the collections,
whether they are held in store or on display. A regular programme of
inspection takes place to ensure everything is well cared for.
As digitisation of the collection continues, and items are added to the
museum’s website, some original documents and photographs are being
safely packed away as there will be no need to view them. This process
makes better use of storage space and also prevents damage to original
items through minimal handling.
As work continues on digitising more photographs, documentation work is
taking place on the contents of albums. An album was previously recorded
with one accession number with a summary of the contents. Now, tied in
with digitisation, each image in the album is given its own unique
number, and the image is described and indexed. Time consuming work, but
vital if the museum’s collections are to be made accessible as possible.
Documentation of new acquisitions continues as items arrive in the
museum and the process usually includes photography of the items and
then their addition to the website.
2012/13 has been yet another poor year for income. Museum shop sales are
the worst for a decade. Much has changed in the way people buy things,
not least books, and we do not sell as many books as we did a decade
ago. At times it is clear that the museum shop is nothing other than a
‘shop window’ for on-line retailers such as ‘Amazon’. A person thumbs
through one of the titles we stock, replaces it on the shelf and
comments that they will ‘buy it on Amazon’.
One of the major military publishers now sells directly, at discounted
prices, to a large mailing list, something which we cannot compete with.
Increasing postage costs are another factor which must be considered. We
do not have the large postage volumes which attract discounts.
Work continues to solicit donations and money trickles in, whilst those
making enquiries are asked for donations only a small number respond.
The museum received no legacies in this financial year. Information on
legacy giving can be requested from the curator. Any legacy, no matter
how small, can help the future development and continued work of the
museum. There are still only three regular donors to the museum’s
regular giving scheme launched two years ago. This is disappointing.
Enquiry Donations & other fundraising: £3621
Donation Box in gallery £286
AMOT Grant Photography Project £470
No Gift Aid claim was made in this financial year, however claims were
later submitted for 2011/12: £431.88 and 2012/13: £572.50.
The museum encourages all donors, who meet the rules, to make a Gift Aid
donation, allowing the museum to reclaim the tax that has been paid on
the amount, presently 25p for every £1 donated.
A full statement of accounts for the year will be presented at the
Trustees Meeting, November 2013 and once approved will be submitted to
the Charity Commission.
So popular was the National Service Years exhibition in January 2012 it
was decided to produce a smaller exhibition for display on the Mezzanine
Floor in the King’s Own gallery. The second National Service exhibition
was able to draw upon some of the photographs and exhibits donated to
the museum as a result of the January exhibition. This exhibition has
run through the year and has been very popular.
The museum has been pleased to be able to assist with exhibitions run by
other museums. A number items were lent and photographic images were
supplied to an exhibition on the British in Palestine held at the Brunei
Gallery of the School of Oriental and Asian Studies in London. Both the
1st and 2nd Battalions of the King’s Own were in Palestine in the 1930s.
December 2012 also saw the start of the planning for the museum’s Great
War Centenary exhibition – or to be more correct the planning of a whole
series of exhibitions which will run from 2014 to 2019 covering all
aspects of the Regiment in the war. The planning work continues and more
details will be released, tied in with a fund-raising campaign in order
to raise the necessary funds to make everything happen.
No new titles have been published this year, but work has started on
some ideas for The Great War Centenary. The museum has a manuscript
written by Colonel John Bois recording the history of the 2nd Battalion,
King’s Own Royal Lancaster Regiment on the Western Front and in Salonika.
This has now been typed and consideration is underway to publication.
There are a number of options, including a lavishly illustrated book as
the original document includes many photographs and watercolours by the
Thought is also been given to small pictorial histories to record other
battalions during The Great War. There are many excellent photographs of
the 5th Battalion which would merit reproduction in print.
The museum also continues to assist with the research and provision of
images for other publications, requests for assistance come in from all
over the world. The museum charges reproduction fees for the use of
photographs and this is a small, but important, source of income.
Digitisation Project – War Diaries and Histories
The First World War diaries on cd-rom continue to be good sellers, and
hopefully sales will increase as the Centenary of the Great War
approaches. They are a valuable resource for any family historian or
anyone undertaking research of names on their local war memorial.
Digitisation of the Second Volume (1814-1914) of the Regimental History,
edited by Colonel L I Cowper and published in 1939 was completed and
this has also been made available on cd-rom, price at £12 – the same
price as the Third Volume, and all the War Diaries. This leaves the
First Volume (cover 1680-1814) to be digitised and produced which will
hopefully be done in 2013.
One of the main efforts has been the continued expansion of the website.
Information is always being added, as are photographs and collection
listings. The website was visited by 132,448 visitors in 2012/13.
Nearly all of the museum’s National Service photographs have now been
digitised and added to the website – all grouped together under a
‘National Service Years’ brand which linked to the new exhibition.
Feedback has been very encouraging, and there remains some work in order
to expand the captions.
Over the summer of 2012 all the museum’s collection information from
1929 to the 1990s was typed up and added to the website. This was
typically the sort of information which appeared in The Lion and The
Rose and later The Lion and The Dragon. Details include the material
donated and the details of the donor. The details from the 1990s already
appeared on the website in the digital copies of the Annual Reports –
but this has now been grouped together. The listing of all acquisition
groups is merely the end of the beginning and work will continue to list
all items in the collection. A major task, but one in which progress is
By the end of March 2013 19520 items were listed or appeared on the
website, approximately 59% of the museum’s collection.
Additions during the year include the following:
|Listing of cap and puggaree badges.|
|Feature on First World War Tank and Crimean Guns at Lancaster
|Boer War Biscuit|
|1914 Message in Bottle|
|King’s Own Royal Border Regiment photographs|
|National Service era photographs|
|Lord Robert’s Visit to Lancaster, July 1904|
|All photographs in the collection of Sir Thomas Harley, 9th
King’s Own, First World War|
|All photographs in the collection of Lieutenant Colonel John
Bois, 2nd King’s Own, First World War.|
|All photographs in the collection of Major Fawcett, 1st/5th
King’s Own, First World War.|
|Information on the 55th Division and items in the collection.|
The museum also maintains a page on the social networking site,
‘Facebook’ and this is used to communicate with nearly 900 people who
have ‘liked’ the page. It provides a good way of promoting events and
contacting people without the management of a mailing list. With the
price of a stamp so expensive it is a “free” way of maintaining contact
Despite encouragement by other museum professionals the museum does not
have a ‘twitter’ account, although should demand for this been seen it
would be considered. So much changes (advances?) so quickly these days
it is not always easy to say which things the museum should be part of!
1359 enquiries were answered during 2012/13, a rise of 55 on the
previous year. The trend has been upwards for the past two decades! By
far the majority of enquiries arrive by email, and this does make life
easier, and allows the museum to provide better responses than to those
received by personal callers (without appointments!) and by telephone.
Email enquiries allow time to be managed to best effect and answers are
supplied with links to relevant pages on the museum’s website.
An increasing number of enquiries are received of a general nature, or
at least not related to the King’s Own. Internet search engines, such as
‘Google’ pick up lots of content on our website, which are not 100%
relevant to the King’s Own, may be a reference to ‘Hayling Island School
of Musketry’, where we have some photographs taken by one officer in the
First World War. Sadly we have little more than the photographs and
their brief captions, but as with all enquiries if we cannot help we
will always do our best to point people in the right direction.
As well as the information on the website the museum still publishes a
number of information sheets which can be picked up, free of charge,
within the gallery itself. They remain popular and will hopefully act as
an incentive to visit the museum’s website once the visitor arrives
Talks and Activities
The King’s Own Museum and Curator continues to take part in the national
Heritage Open Days each September, as well as providing a range of talks
and lectures both within the museum and to other organisations. The
museum asks for a small donation of only £50 for an external talk,
whilst talks and events held within the museum are free. Sadly some
groups have requested a talk but then decline on the basis of the cost.
It was, however, a pleasure to do a talk to 381 Supply Squadron, 159
Supply Regiment at their Barracks in Lancaster. Hopefully the first of
many to Lancaster’s newly establish unit

Once again the museum can look back upon a year of some excellent
additions to the collection. By far the majority of items are generously
gifted to the museum, however this year a generous bequest to the Duke
of Lancaster’s Regiment allowed the museum to make some special
The Millar Bequest
The Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment received a bequest from Mrs Emmeline
Millar who died in January 2011. Her father was Private Ben Moore who
served with the 1st/4th Battalion of the King’s Own during the Great
War. Under the terms of her will she bequeathed a legacy of £100,000 to
the Duke of Lancaster’s Regimental Charity. Mrs Millar at some point
contacted the Curator to find details of the Regiment in order to make
her bequest. In recognition of the assistance given by Peter Donnelly
the Trustees of the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment ring fenced £10,000 of
the bequest to the Museum for acquisitions. This money has now been
Private Ben Moore, number 1107, of the 4th Battalion,
(Territorial Force) King’s Own Royal Lancaster Regiment enlisted on 24th
February 1909. He was mobilised on the outbreak of the First World War
and arrived on the Western Front on 3rd May 1915. He was wounded at
Festubert and whilst his shoulder was damaged his arm was saved, but he
was unable to raise his arm. He was discharged due to the wounds on 30th
November 1915. Moore was no longer able to play the violin but did play
the clarinet after the war. He attended the Mount Vernon Hospital in
London and lived a useful and nice life despite the wounds for which he
received a pension. He sometimes rejoined the 4th Battalion at their
camps and played his clarinet.
The funds from the Millar bequest were used to purchase a number of
medal groups from a private collection and the photograph albums of
Lieutenant Forbes-Taylor of the 6th Battalion, First World War. The
medals include the important Second World War Distinguished Conduct
Medal group to Sergeant Philip Fordham of the 1st King’s Own, one of
eight DCMs awarded to the regiment in the war.
