The Household Cavalry Museum
The Household Cavalry Museum is a living Museum in the heart of Horse Guards, Whitehall, London.
1st The Queen's Dragoon Guards began its formal existence on January 1st 1959, this being the day when the 1st King's Dragoon Guards was amalgamated with the 2nd Dragoon Guards, better known as the Queen's Bays. Thus ended the separate identities of two of the oldest and most distinguished regiments in the British Army.
The Queen’s Royal Hussars, and its antecedent regiments, have accumulated a particularly rich collection of literature and artefacts during their participation in wars, battles, significant actions and garrison activities in many parts of the world.
The museum which is also supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund is one of the founder members of Winchester’s Military Museums, a partnership of five museums located in Peninsula Square and Lower Barracks, Winchester.
Charge! The Story of England's Northern Cavalry. It brings together the collections of the antecedent regiments of The Light Dragoons and also tells the continuing story of the Northumberland Hussars since becoming the Command & Support Squadron of the Queen's Own Yeomanry.
