'2nd Royal North British Dragoons, Scots Greys, Chobham 1853'
Print after A F de Prades; published by J S Welch, 24 St James Street, March 1854.
In 1693 the Royal Regiment of Scots Dragoons were inspected in London by King William III. On this occasion the whole regiment was mounted on 'greys' (horses with white or dappled-white hair). This gained them the nickname 'the Grey Dragoons' or 'the Scots Regiment of Grey Dragoons', though this only became part of their official name in 1877.
