2014 has been a busy and enterprising year for the Museum. Throughout
the early part of the year much planning was ongoing to prepare for our
exhibition to mark the Centenary of The Great War. On Saturday 21st June
‘War ! 1914: Lancaster and The King’s Own go to War’ was officially
opened on the ground floor of the City Museum by the Deputy Mayor of the
City of Lancaster. The exhibition has been a triumph. It recognised the
enormous contribution to our nation of local men and women. To date it
has been seen by 19 000 visitors and generated much interest in the
Museum and The King’s Own Royal Regiment. To undertake the exhibition we
received generous financial support from the Sir John Fisher Foundation
to which we are most grateful. What made this financial support
particularly meaningful was Sir John himself, and his brother, were
members of the Regiment and deployed to France with the 4th Battalion in
1915. To mount such an exhibition required much time and effort. On
behalf of all the Trustees may I warmly thank all those behind the
scenes who made it happen. We are grateful. Plans are now in hand to
mark other major events of The Great War involving the Regiment.
Meanwhile the work of the Museum continues unabated. The number of
enquiries from the Regimental Family and the general public continue to
increase. In August alone there were 299 individual enquiries. Interest
has been sparked and long may it continue. We are privileged to be the
custodians of a living history of the character, activities and history
of The King’s Own Royal Regiment.
2013/14 has been a further busy and successful year. On behalf of all
the Trustees may I once again thank the Curator for all his endeavours.
Our thanks are also due to the City of Lancaster and the Lancashire
County Council for their continued support and encouragement together
with our many other friends and supporters.
An additional than ten thousand visitors walked through out doors
compared to the previous year. A total of 58 000 visitors is very
impressive and it is thanks to the exhibition of the Silverdale Viking
Hoard acquired by the County Museum Service and displayed first at the
City Museum. Whilst the Silverdale Viking Hoard is in no way regimental,
it did attract many visitors to the museum, and after they had looked at
the special exhibition, most came upstairs to see the local history
galleries and the King’s Own Museum. The museum was far busier than
normal in October and November 2013, indeed each day felt like it was
the middle of the summer holidays! November 2013 alone saw 10 261 people
visit the museum, compared to 3 268 in the previous November!
It is good that the museum is busy and there are so many people, both
local and from away who are interested in their history. Fingers crossed
for some good visitor numbers for the Great War Centenary Exhibition in
Work continues at the usual busy pace in all areas. So much has gone on,
the museum has been able to acquire some really good items, shared
information through exhibitions, talks and the website and attended
special events such as the “Campus in the City” event run by Lancaster
University in St. Nicholas shopping centre.
One of the highlights of the year was the signing of the Military
Covenant by Lancaster City Council in the presence of the Mayor of
Lancaster and Councillor Liz Scott, Veterans Champion with Lancaster
City Council. It was great to be able to host the event which shows that
the King’s Own Museum is very much the place where things happen!
The museum trustees met at the annual meeting in November. The Chairman
and Curator attended a meeting of the Duke of Lancaster’s Regimental
Museum Co-ordinating Committee in the summer. Major Daniel Parsonage
represented the Chairman at the Lancashire County Council and Lancaster
City Council Museum Advisory Panel.
The Museum holds full accreditation under the scheme operated by Arts
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
67, 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 71 in the previous year. (Certificate
Reference Number: 0395-2866-4410-5100-8400).
As always the museum is most 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 Gaynor
Greenwood; Fergus Read; Howard Martin; Pat and David Shackleton; Martin
Evans; Jackie Britton; Paul Thompson; Graham Davis; Neil Barnett;
Christopher and Gail Knight; Major Robert Davison; Major Simon Walton;
Major Phil McNeil for their continued support and assistance to the
Curator. To those named and to many more – a big thank you for all of
your help, assistance and encouragement.
No major collections management work has taken place in this reporting
period. This may outwardly appear a little slack of the curator!
However, the truth of the matter is that there is little work to be
done. The collections are well documented and properly stored after many
years of hard work. Some re-organisation of the stores has taken place
in order to increase the available space. Conservation storage items,
including acid free boxes, have been generously supplied to the museum
by Army Heritage Branch and this has allowed many of the photographic
albums to be stored in boxes.
Work continues on the documentation of new items as well as their
preparation for storage. At the present time the museum holds good
stocks of polyester envelopes, used to store photographs and documents,
and acid free boxes. A bulk purchase a number of years ago allowed for a
good price and a healthy stock.
Part of the curator’s job remains one of raising money. With more money
the museum can do more. The Great War Centenary Appeal attracted £685 in
donations, which was not as much as was hoped. We live in hard financial
times and there are many demands upon people’s money.
An application to the Sir John Fisher Foundation for financial support
towards the Great War Centenary Exhibition was successful and a grant of
£8000 has been received towards the exhibition. This will allow the
museum to put on a good show and a good range of supporting activities.
The museum has three donors who signed up to the regular donors scheme.
The take-up of this scheme has been a little disappointing.
Great War Centenary Donors:
Mrs Cynthia Byrne
Colonel John de Cordova
Lieutenant Colonel Peter Dew
Mr Alan Donnelly

Major Steve Firth MBE

The museum received no bequests in this reporting year.
A number of small exhibitions have been produced through the year. These
included an exhibition to commemorate the 200th Anniversary of the death
of Lieutenant Francis Maguire at the storming of San Sebastian when he
led the forlorn hope. The exhibition included transcripts of original
letters received by his mother concerning his service and death. The
exhibition tied in with a talk given by the curator on the actual
anniversary of his death, 31st August 1813.
A small exhibition was produced looking at Lancaster’s military heritage
and this included photographs of the important sites around Lancaster
such as the Regimental Chapel, Springfield and Bowerham Barracks and
some 19th Century photographs of the Royal Lancashire Militia on parade
on Giant Axe Field.
In connection with the Great War exhibition a small temporary exhibition
was produced to raise awareness of the planned major exhibition and
other events and activities. This display was first used at the “Campus
in the City” event organised by Lancaster University, as part of the
History Department’s display. In four days nearly 600 people visited the
exhibition held in a shop unit in St. Nicholas Arcade. Once the “Campus
in the City” event was finished the display was moved to the museum and
located at the entrance to the King’s Own gallery.
The museum has not printed any publications in this reporting year.
Consideration is being given to the publication of a number of Great War
histories or memoirs, however, books do not sell as well as they used
to. Work is underway at typing up the Great War 2nd Battalion history
written by Colonel John Bois and it may be appropriate to publish this
in 2015 to mark the 100th anniversary of the 2nd Battalion going to the
Western Front and then to Salonika.
Consideration has to be made between the costs of publishing a printed
book and the income generated from it, or making the text available
without charge on the museum’s website.
Digitisation Project – War Diaries and Histories
The digitised First World War diaries on cd-rom continue to be good
sellers and the key way for family historians to learn about the actions
of the battalion in which their relative served. The digitisation of the
diaries is safeguarding the future of the originals which are now
carefully stored and not handled or photocopied in the way that was
causing them damage.
The main project this year has been the digitisation of the First Volume
of the Regimental History by Colonel LI Cowper, covering 1680 to 1814.
This has now been fully digitised and made available on cd-rom for £12.
This long-awaited cd-rom completes the three volume regimental history,
and makes the work available as the books have been long out of print
and are expensive to purchase second hand.
166 332 visitors took a look at the museum’s website throughout the
year. Content has continued to be increased and special pages devoted to
the Great War have been created.
Additions to the website include:
|Collection of Sergeant John Lacy Rowlandson, (King’s Own and
107th Regt RAC)|
|Collection of Captain Geoffrey Randall, 56th Anti-Tank Regiment|
|Collection of Private John Willshaw, 1st/4th King’s Own.|

The curator answered 2 131 enquiries in the twelve months covered by
this report. Enquiries are a major way in which the community engages
with the museum. The total for this year marks a considerable increase
on previous years (last year 1359 were answered). The number of
enquiries started to increase in November 2013 and continued to rise
each following month. The increased interest in the First World War has
been one cause of the increase, but enquiries covering all periods are
still being received.
The BBC’s coverage of the First World War, starting with the series by
Jeremy Paxman, ensured that public interest has been high.
Answering enquiries takes a fair amount of time, and it is only with the
museum’s website and other resources such as the digitised regimental
history and war diaries that so many can be answered quickly and
