British Cavalry Uniforms of the 19th Century: The Royal North British Dragoons

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. 


#8: The Royal North British Dragoons

“Better known as the Scots Greys, this regiment was raised in 1678. In 1700 it was called the Grey Dragoons or The Scots Regiment of White Horse. The trooper shown is here wearing the uniform of the Waterloo period, round about 1815.”
