On a memorial in our local church a unit is down as KL. What would this be, as I guessed it might be Lancers as opposed to Light Infantry, but not come up with anything definitive, thanks, Matt

My guess is King's Liverpool.

Can you give us a name? The King's Liverpool Regiment is normally seen as L'Pool Regt or KLR if not as The King's or the Liverpool Regiment but also seems to be referred to at the King's Liverpools

Liverpool is more likely than Lancaster which would be KO for Kings Own.

There was a King's Hussars but no King's Lancers.
