The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards Museum

The Castle, Edinburgh EH1 2YT, United Kingdom

An important collection illustrating the history of Scotland’s only cavalry regiment and its English and Scottish antecedents dating back to 1678. Famous episodes in regimental history, such as the charge of the Royal Scots Greys at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, the same Regiment’s action in the 1943 Italian campaign and the 3rd Carabiniers epic assault in Burma are given pride of place amongst well presented displays of uniformed figures, paintings, photographs and regimental trophies from its various campaigns. Interactive displays and exhibits take the visitor right up to the Regiment’s most recent involvement in Iraq. The regimental archive and library may be viewed by appointment with the Regimental Secretary.
