#4: The 13th Light Dragoons
“This regiment formed part of the Light Brigade in the famous charge at Balaclava and our picture shows a trooper of this period. In 1861 the regiment was converted to Hussars and in 1922 amalgamated with the 18th Hussars to form the 13th/18th Royal Hussars (Queen Mary’s Own).”
