Branch members who attended the homecoming of the Light Dragoons were Malc Lettin, Vic Leigh, Brian Lee, and Syd Dyson who with thousands of Barnsley residents witnessed the Dragoons receive the freedom of the borough.
The Light Dragoons were formerly the 13th - 18th and 15th 19th Hussars. I wondered why the Hussars had become Dragoons. It seems that a lot of amalgamations ago and just as many years, ago the Hussars were formerly Dragoons. The recent cap badge and dress seems to favour the 15th-19th who historicaly recruited in the Newcastle area. Though historicaly the 13th 18th were the first Regiment to lay there armourd tracks on the Normandy beaches in WW2.
