#2 The 9th Lancers
“First raised as Dragoons in 1715 and then armed and equipped as Lancers in 1816. It was not until 1830 that the regiment received its full title of the 9th or Queen’s Royal Lancers. Depicted here is an officer in review order.”

9th/12th Royal Lancers Museum: A fine display on this regiment and its associated regiments can be found in the Derby Museum and Art Gallery at the Strand, Derby. Free entry and highly recommended. I made a report of my visit here.
