The Royal Mercian and Lancastrian Yeomanry was a yeomanry regiment of the United Kingdom's Territorial Army. It served in the armoured replacement role, providing replacement tank crews for regulararmoured regiments.

 

The regiment was formed in 1992 by the amalgamation of The Queen's Own Mercian Yeomanry and The Duke of Lancaster's Own Yeomanry as part of the Options for Change. In 1999, it absorbed a squadron from The Queen's Own Yeomanry, bringing it to a strength of four squadrons plus the headquarters squadron.

In October 2006, the RMLY became a single cap badge regiment, when the individual cap badges of each squadron were replaced by the newly designed RMLY cap badge. This incorporates the Mercian Eagle from the Queen's Own Mercian Yeomanry with the Red Rose from the Duke of Lancaster's Own Yeomanry. This is also the point at which H-Det joined the regiment, to provide a Recce troop. H-Det was renamed Manoeuvre and Support Squadron in 2011, when it was given Squadron status; it still consists of the Recce troop, but now also houses the "hoop" (coms for the squadron).

In July 2013, it was announced that that RMLY will be restructured for the Army 2020 plan. The regimental HQ will be shifted to Edinburgh. A Squadron will resubordinate to The Royal Yeomanry, while D Squadron will resubordinate to The Queen’s Own Yeomanry. B and C Squadron will be removed from the Army ORBAT. Instead, A, B and C Squadron from the Queen’s Own Yeomanry will subordinate to the HQ at Edinburgh. It will be paired with the Royal Scot Dragoon Guards and subordinate to 51st Infantry Brigade. Defence Secretary Hammond has stated that it may be renamed as "The Scottish and North Irish Yeomanry"
