The 26th Hussars

The 26th Hussars was a cavalry regiment of the British Army from 1941 to 1943.

The regiment was raised at Meerut in June 1941 from a cadre of personnel taken from the 14th/20th King’s Hussars and was assigned to 2nd Indian Armoured Brigade. The regiment was later moved to 255th Indian Armoured Brigade at Sialkot.

Stanley Gibbons, a former member of the 26th Hussars wrote an account of his time in the regiment. It is something I am sure all will find of interest!
