4
Cunningham's Dragoons were raised in Scotland in 1689, and won their fist battle honour at Dettingen alongside the 3rd Hussars. They fought during the Peninsular War and gained the admiration of Wellington for their heroic charges at Waterloo. The 7th Hussars where then sent to Canada helping to repulse an American invasion before staying on in a protective role.

3In 1900 the Regiment joined the 3rd and 8th Hussars in the Boer War. They served in India during much of the Great War before deploying to Mesopotamia in 1917 to fight the Turkish forces. They found themselves in the Middle East at the outbreak of the 2nd World War. Here they fought with distinction in the battle of Sidi Rezegh where having been given the mission to stop the advance of 200 German tanks they lost 47 of their original 51 tanks. In 1942 the Regiment covered the long retreat through Burma where they gained the praise of General Alexander.

2At the end of the 2nd World War, the Regiment served in England before amalgamation with the 3rd Hussars in 1958.
