In September 1914 the 11th Battalion (Lonsdale) Border Regiment, or The ‘Lonsdale Battalion’ as they were known, was created.

The Battalion was originally raised by the 5th Earl of Lonsdale (Hugh Cecil Lowther) which is where the Battalion gets its unique name. Members of the Battalion had a distinctive cap badge with the the Lowther crest, even after it became part of the Border Regiment.
