This military unit was raised originally in response to the Jacobite Rebellion in 1715 as Humphrey Gore’s Regiment of Dragoons. Renamed 10th Royal Hussars, Prince Of Wales Own, in 1751 and in 1806, The Royal Hussars. “Dragoon” comes from the word “Dragon” and was used in the name as these were among the first cavalry regiments to use rifles rather than swords when entering the fight on horseback. They laid the rifle between the ears of their horse when galloping toward their enemy at full speed. The purpose was to create chaos in the ranks of the enemy, making it easier for the advancing foot soldiers to destroy their adversaries with minimal loss to their own warriors.
