Hi Cass
An interesting question but sadly impossible to answer.
Many years ago Joe Eastwood asked a University Don who lived nearby and who was a statistics Professor to look into the the question of how many LF's were still alive etc and approximately when the ' last LF ' would go on his final posting. Sadly he came back with the answer that it was viritually impossible to do due to the number of variables. Apart from the ORBAT of 1968 compiled by Joe from unofficial sources there are no known Nominal Rolls of the Lancashire Fusilier Battalions, with the exception of the Spion Kop nominal roll. I would imagine that ANY former LF would be far to old to still be serving these days. A quick calculation with my very poor maths would show that a 17 year old LF in 1968 (the youngest age possible) would have been born in 1951 and would now be 68 years old.
