Household Cavalry

Living History


I was wondering if anyone could help me. The Household Cavalry was formed into two regiments during the war, (the 1st and 2nd) and from my understanding both regiments were a mix of The Life Guards and The Blues and Royals, who would have worn their own shoulder titles. Would they have worn their own cap badges or would both units have worn the Household Cavalry Regiment cap badge?

Also if anyone can point me in the right direction for further information about the 2nd HCR, ie order of battle, war diary etc that would be a great help.

Many thanks
