LANARK should be the place where our area’s Forgotten Regiment is finally properly remembered.

Although the glorious Cameronians are quite rightly commemorated each year with a ceremony at a monument at their Douglas birthplace, there is hardly any reminder of another locally recruited army unit which made huge sacrifices for our nation – the Lanarkshire Yeomanry.

Now a group of ex-Yeomen and relatives of late members of the mostly Territorial unit disbanded after World War 2 want a proper memorial erected to the memory of the regiment.
