Good Morning Karl
As Dennis said the Lancashire Fusiliers never had the word Royal in their name.
It sounds to me given his postings during WW2 that he would have been a member of the 2nd Battalion LF.
Service Records are not held locally. Please scroll down the Message Board page to my entry dated 10.11.19 headed Obtaining a Service Record. It explains how to go about getting Service Records from the Army Records Office in Glasgow.
Click on the link below to take you to the page for the 2nd Battalion. Click on the various place names in bold black type for details of their WW2 activities.
Regards
Geoff Pycroft
