British Cavalry Uniforms of the 19th Century: 10th Royal Hussars

The beginning of a series of regular blog posts displaying images from “British Cavalry Uniforms of the 19th Century”; a set of trade cards issued by Badshah Tea Co. of London in 1963. 


#1 The 10th Royal Hussars

“Our picture shows the colourful uniform worn by the officers at the time of William IV. The 10th Prince of Wales’ Royal Hussars were raised as Dragoons in 1715, converted to Light Dragoons in 1783 and finally to Hussars in 1811.”
