Description

The history of the Regiment is inextricably linked with that of its home county of Nottinghamshire. Formed in 1794, as part of the Nottinghamshire Yeomanry, the Regiment had a primarily policing role until the mid-nineteenth century, a time of turbulence and social unrest. By 1850 the Regiment had handed this role to the newly formed police force and it became a reserve Hussar unit. Now resplendent in green and gold uniforms, the Regiment regularly paraded in front of large crowds at Newark, Retford, Mansfield and Worksop, little realising how it was about to be tested. 240pp
