About the Museum

The Regimental story is told in an exhibition at the Discovery Museum, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, “Charge! England’s Northern Cavalry”.  This unites the collections of the antecedent regiments of the Light Dragoons so that the complete 300 year story can be told for the first time.  It also tells the continuing story of the Northumberland Hussars since becoming the Command & Support squadron of the Queen’s Own Yeomanry. Both regiments, which are formally affiliated to each other, are the only cavalry regiments today which exclusively recruit from the North of England.
