The 20th Hussars

XHX

The 20th Hussars, originally raised in Inniskilling in 1759, served only in wartime until 1862, and being a junior regiment, was subjected to a number of disbandments after each successive conflict.

In 1861 it was re-raised from European Cavalry in the service of the East India Company and saw action in Sudan and South Africa.  The 20th were also actively involved in the First World War, seeing the majority of their service in France and Flanders.

They then took part in operations against Turkish Nationalists in Ismid in 1920 where they carried out the last regimental cavalry charge in British military history.
