Queen's Own Hussars

Parade in No.2 Dress 1985

The regiment paraded in the rain on 14th May 1985 to celebrate the Tercentenary of the Queen's Own Hussars. The Queen Mother inspects the men who are armed with Sterling Sub-Machineguns. The officers carry swords and the junior officer in the foreground holds his 1912 type cavalry sword with brown leather sword knot. He has a forage cap without gold on the peak as is worn by the senior officers behind him. On his sleeve is the red badge of the Mermaid of Warsaw, granted to the 7th Hussars in WW2. The senior officers are the Commanding officer, Lt-Col Jenkins, nearest to the Queen Mother, and Lt-General Carnegie, the Colonel of the regiment.
