Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 13th Hussars (previously the 13th Light Dragoons) was a cavalry regiment of the British Army whose battle honours include Waterloo and The Charge of the Light Brigade. 1n 1922, the regiment was amalgamated with the 18th (Queen Mary's Own) Royal Hussars, to form the 13th/18th Hussars.British light dragoons were first raised in the 18th century. Initially they formed part of a cavalry regiment performing scouting, reconnaissance and the like, but due to their successes in this role, (and also in charging and harassing the enemy), they soon acquired a reputation for courage and skill. Whole regiments dedicated to this role were soon raised; the 15th Light Dragoons were the first, followed by the 18th Light Dragoons and the 19th Light Dragoons.show more
