Last mounted parade of the 14th/20th King's Hussars, Lucknow, 1938

Photograph, India, 1938.

In the years after World War One (1914-1918) it was clear that future warfare would involve a lesser role for cavalry. In 1928 the 11th (Prince Albert's Own) Hussars became the first cavalry regiment to mechanise, receiving Rolls-Royce and Lanchester armoured cars. The other British cavalry regiments followed their lead and all were eventually mechanised by 1941.
