This website is devoted to the

Household Cavalry Regiment

I hope you will find in these pages all you want to learn about this unique and historical
Regiment, comprising The Life Guards and The Blues And Royals — the proud
and glorious histories of the Regiments that form today's Household Cavalry Regiment,
the soldiers, the horses, Regimental traditions, ceremonial and operational uniforms,
Regimental music, and accommodation.

Navigate your way around the site by clicking on any of the ribbon links below — in some
instances they take you to other pages, from where you may widen your search.

ARE YOU WILLING TO HELP SOLDIERS
INJURED IN SERVICE — AND FAMILIES
OF THOSE KILLED ON ACTIVE SERVICE?

The Household Cavalry Armoured Reconnaissance Regiment undertakes a
vital role in modern warfare — not too long ago the Regiment was in action
in the Falklands War; more recently they played a part in both Gulf Wars,
and (latterly) have seen deployments to Afghanistan.

If YOU feel that you would like to support a fund dedicated to helping
Household Cavalry Regiment soldiers injured while on active service, and
providing support and help to families of soldiers killed in action . . .
then this link will take you to more information.

What If Your Question(s) Require Research?

Some inquiries require more research than others, which can
be costly for everyone involved — although I try to answer all
e-mails myself, there are many inquiries beyond my capability
to answer without reference to others.

Please be advised that research that has to be carried out by
Household Cavalry Museum and/or Museum Archive personnel
can, by its very nature, be complex and costly — therefore, an
appropriate fee will be charged (this can be determined before
any research work is commenced. Alternatively, inquirers can
choose to make an appropriate donation to the

Household Cavalry Operational Casualties Fund

H.C.C.C.F.

I would like to dedicate this website to all those men of the Household Cavalry
(and include, in this, their families and loved ones) who have given their lives
while in the service of their Country, their Sovereign, and their Regiments

WE WILL REMEMBER THEM
