The Irish Harp is encircled with the inscription “Queen’s Royal Irish Hussars” surmounted by the Royal Crest. Underneath is inscribed “Mente et Manu” (with Heart and Hand). The regiment was formed on October 24, 1958 by the merging of the 4th Queen’s Own Hussars and the 8th King’s Royal Irish Hussars. The harp surmounted by the Royal Crest was part of the badge of officers of the 8th Hussars. The motto is that of the 4th Hussars granted in 1906. The distinction of “Royal” reflects an appointment by the Monarch. More to come.
