De La Rue produced a range of high quality games at the end of the Victorian period and into the early 1900s. The “Cavalry Game” – registered in c.1914 – aims to teach identification of the various Dragoon Guard regiments.

Players compete through drawing and exchanging cards to complete sets of the regiments, and the player who first obtains four Brigades making a Cavalry Division wins the game. Later editions of the game were licensed to H.P. Gibson & Sons Ltd.

This card depicts an Officer from the 20th Hussars.
