This website is in memory of the 1st Lothians and Border Yeomanry in their 1939-1940 campaign. It does not cover the second line 1st Lothians (1940 - 1945) or the 2nd Lothians and Border Horse, although mention is made of these regiments here.

The 1st Lothians and Border Yeomanry are also known as 'The Lothians' or 'L&B' or 'L&BY' and even the 'Loathsome and Bloodies'! or 'Laugh and Be Happy'.

This website would not be what it is without the many contributions from ex-Lothians, family and friends. Thank you, all of you, for your generous time, photos, information and memorabilia.
