13th Hussars

On 23 July 1715, less than a year into his reign, King George I authorised 11 noblemen to form dragoon regiments. One of these units was Richard Munden’s Regiment of Dragoons, named after its founder.

The new unit saw its first action on 12 November 1715 against a Jacobite roadblock in Lancaster during the Battle of Preston. It also served at Prestonpans and Falkirk during the Second Jacobite Revolt (1745-46), before undertaking garrison duties in Ireland and England.

In 1751, it was given the numeral 13. And by the end of the 18th century, it had become a light dragoon regiment.
