The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment: New memorial for fallen 'Lions of England'

The Queen has unveiled a new memorial for those who have died while serving with the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment.

She laid a wreath at the Lion of England bronze statue at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire after a service earlier.

Since the regiment was set up in 2006, its soldiers have fought in Iraq and Afghanistan where 32 have died.

The dedication service was attended by wounded veterans, Army personnel, families and friends.
