During the 19th century, 12 British Army regiments were retitled or created as hussars, adopting traditions established by the Hungarian hussars of the 17th century.
Over the years, the original British hussar regiments have amalgamated to form the three present-day units: The King's Royal Hussars, the Queen's Royal Hussars and the Light Dragoons.
Come and discover their histories and the distinctive, dazzling uniforms which earned some regiments nicknames like The Shiny Tenth and The Old Saucy Seventh. Learn about the traditions they have developed, and the many famous cavalry charges they have taken part in.
The exhibition includes contributions from the Hungarian Institute and Museum of Military History.
