Specific soldiers who served in the Royal Lincolnshire Regiment.

The Regimental Museum does not hold any personal service records therefore we cannot give enquirers any information relating to a soldiers service in the Lincolnshire Regiment. Service records can be obtained as follows:

(a) For Officers or Soldiers whose regular or reserve service ended before 1921 - The National Archives

(b) Officers or Soldiers whose regular or reserve service ended between 1921 and 1997 - Army Personnel Centre If the soldier served during the First World War, The National Archives website www.nationalarchives.gov.uk enables access to medal cards, which should give details of the medals awarded, the regiment or other unit/corps and the service number.

The regiment's actions on a given day or during a given period of time.

Information relating to the regiment's general history is covered very well in 'The Poachers' by David Nalson. If you are seeking information relating to the First World War it is comprehensively covered by 'The History of the Lincolnshire Regiment' by Major-General Simpson.
