A little time ago, I showed a Military Cross Group - British and awarded in 1943 during the

North African desert Campaign against the Afrika Korps. Since none were named - being

British issue - we have been unable to place the recipient , however, these two pictures of the

1 st. King Dragoon Guards , were with the medals. During the 2nd World War they served as

light armour in Scout cars and were in both the North Africa campaign and in Italy

This modern drawing - seemingly done in the 1970's shows regimental dress in different periods.

This old print dates to 1799 - and also, shows the 1st. King's Dragoon Guards at that time.
