Synopsis

Here for the first time ever, is a book dedicated to the head-dress worn by the British Heavy Cavalry, both regular, and volunteer of the period 1842 to the present day. It is lavishly illustrated with both colour and black and white photographs of helmets, most of which have never previously been published, together with contemporary black and white photographs of officers in full dress uniform. Each pattern of helmet is fully described, including the type of materials and metal used, the number of component parts, and method of construction for both the officers, and the other ranks pattern of helmet. The head-dress includes the three Household Cavalry regiments from the c. 1842, the seven regiments of Dragoon Guards, and three of Dragoons from 1847, and some twenty-seven regiments of yeomanry from c. 1848 to 1914. Additionally there is a brief description of the pattern of helmet worn by many of these regiments prior to 1842/47, a 'thumbnail' description of the full dress uniform worn, together with the address of the Regimental Headquarters of each yeomanry regiment as at 1914.

This book is an essential source of reference for both the established, and new collectors of heavy cavalry head-dress of both the regular cavalry and the yeomanry regiments, and to the student of cavalry full dress uniforms of the period c. 1850 to 1914.
