Leicester "Tigers" RUFC Heritage Project

Leicester "Tigers" RUFC Heritage Project

Leicester Tigers & The Royal Leicestershire Regiment

History, heritage and tradition are at the heart of the Leicester Tigers and the club is embarking on an ambitious project to celebrate its roots and links in the local community. The club has formed a Time Team to ensure that the Tigers' rich and successful history is recognised and secured. The starting point is to focus on the club's beginnings and to celebrate the links between Leicester Tigers and the Royal Leicestershire Regiment. In 1880 Leicester Football Club was formed at the George Hotel in the city and the first Tigers reference followed in The Leicester Post during February 1885 when a report stated that the "Tigers stripes were keeping well together" in a match against Bedford School. The Tigers name came from a chocolate and orange kit from those formative years and was influenced by the close links with the Royal Leicestershire Regiment. The 1880 squad included a number of officers from the Regiment and throughout the history of the Tigers men from the regiment have been involved in the team and administration. The club is now fundraising for a Foundation Monument to act as a gateway to a larger heritage and community project, and to act as an iconic symbol of respect for the past and inspiration for the future. The monument will recognise members of the Leicestershire Regiment who have played for the Tigers and act as a memorial to the fallen. As the club's heritage projects also have the support of the Leicester Tigers Foundation's other key areas of disability sports, education and inclusion, the monument will also serve to recognise those whose lives have been affected by injury in rugby or in conflict and how Tigers are working with disability sport to offer inspiration and support to inspire future generations and different cultures.

KOYLI Memorial Statue

KOYLI Memorial Statue

Kings Own Yorkshire Light Infantry Memorial Statue

Yorkshire Fine Arts Ltd are extremely honoured and proud to have been commissioned for the KOYLI Memorial Statue.  The Memorial is to pay tribute to the Regiment which includes all who served and those who died in its service.

In 1968 the Regiment was taken out of the Active Service list.  The KOYLI took part in Peninsula, Napoleonic and Boer Wars where their first VC was won.  16 Battalions served in WW1 and a further 8 VC's were awarded, but tragically 9447 of our best gave the ultimate sacrifice; thereafter followed the battlefields of WW2, the emergencies of Malaysia, Kenya, Cyprus, Borneo, Sarawak, and Aden where Yorkshiremen rallied to the Bugle Call.

The Memorial is to be located in Doncaster where the KOYLI Museum is situated.  The unveiling is expected to take place on 1st August 2018, this being 50 years after the KOYLI name was consigned to the history books. The memorial is to ensure the proud heritage is known and that future generations should know of the past and the sacrifices made by the Regiment.

The photo attached shows Stephen Winterburn -  sculptor,  and Howard Potts aka "Percy" - fundraiser, with the Memorial statue maquette.
