A great regiment with a proud history. Founded 7 November 1759 as Hale's Light Horse. John Hale gave it it's distinct badge. As the 17th Lancers they took part in the American Revolution, the Charge of the Light Brigade, putting down the Sepoy Rebellion, etc. They have been amalgamated with other regiments several times and will be merged again in 2020 to form the Royal Lancers. THE elite shock troops of their era.
