The Royal Air Force also used Weeton Camp, along with RAF Squires Gate and the army camp at Kirkham, for training purposes during the Second World War . It continued to be used by the RAF, mainly for driver (MT) training, until 1965.
The barracks were significantly enhanced in the early 1960s and became the home of 1st Battalion the Lancashire Fusiliers in 1965. Since 2011 it has been the home of 2nd Battalion the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment after they returned from a three-year tour in Cyprus.
