We are in the process of raising funds for a memorial to The Kings Own Yorkshire Light Infantry (KOYLI) which was disbanded in 1968, we hope to have the memorial outside, Doncaster Museum by 2018 which is 50 years since the Regiment became the 2nd Light Infantry.
If any of your family were in any of the KOYLI Regiments and you would like to make a donation towards the memorial, this can be done by using the Donate button at the top of the page. A thank you email will be sent to all donors.
