Founded 1819. Badge is the arms of Lancaster. It has origins in the various troops of light horse raised in the eighteenth century in the
county of Lancaster, the earliest of which was the
Bolton Light Horse formed in 1798. The Sovereign, as the Duke of Lancaster, has traditionally been Colonel-in-Chief. (Oxford, new red, saffron)
Carefully untie your tie when you remove it. It should come off the same way it went on, in reverse. Pulling the knot loose will tear the neckpiece, the third part of the tie construction. Hang it in your closet, unless it is a knit, which you should roll. A silk tie will lose its wrinkles if it is given rest in your closet and the help of gravity. Ties cannot be dry-cleaned, cannot be washed, and cannot be pressed. Either cover your tie when you eat, or prepare to replace it when it is soiled.
