The term deriving from the French word for a short musket, dragoons were mounted troops but not cavalry; they were intended to be mobile but able to fight on foot. This updated regimental history of the Light Dragoons, created by amalgamation in 1992, traces its lineage back to four regiments of Hussars formed in the 18th century and describes the activities of the dragoon units from the Jacobite Rebellion and the Peninsular War to the Cold War and Afghanistan.
