Introduction to the Website

The aim of this website is to bring you the history of one of the British army’s finest regiments of the past for all future generations to read and admire.

The 14th were originally raised as Dormer’s Dragoons in 1715 during the First Jacobite Rising. The regiment became Light Dragoons in 1776 and were designated as hussars in 1861. The 20th were raised as light dragoons in 1759 and became hussars in 1862.

Originally named the 14th/20th Hussars, the regiment was created on the 1st October 1922 by the amalgamation of the 14th King’s Hussars and the 20th (xHx) Hussars, as part of the reductions in the Army after the First World War. The honorific King’s was added back into the title in 1936.

The 14th/20th King’s Hussars became part of the Royal Armoured Corps (RAC) when it was formed in April 1939 by combining the Horse mounted Cavalry units that had mechanised and the Royal Tank Corps (which was renamed the Royal Tank Regiment).

In 1941, a cadre of personnel from the regiment was used to form the 26th Hussars.

The 14th/20th King’s Hussars amalgamated with The Royal Hussars (PWO) on the 4th December 1992 at York Barrack in Munster, Germany to form The King’s Royal Hussars.

Website Forum

The forum installed a couple of months ago suddenly became unsafe when it was being spammed over a prolonged period of time. Because of those actions by unknowns I decided it best to have that forum removed and look for other options.
 
I have decided to go with Wix, that forum/chatroom has been set up and is now working, although still in its infancy, and is ready for you to call in at and use.
 
Again I do not know how successful this will be. I had the last one installed by professionals who assured me it was safe, clearly that was not the case. I will continue to monitor this one and I will remove it again if it become a liability, it is. your online security that matters more to me than an insecure Forum.
