Dismounted parade of the 5th Inniskilling Dragoon Guards, Warburg Barracks, Aldershot, 1930-1933
Photograph by Gale and Polden, Aldershot, 1930-1933.
A senior officer inspects a parade of men in the smartened up issues of service dress made after World War One (1914-1918). The men still wear the old full dress sword belts and carry the 1908 pattern sword. Although the 5th Inniskilling Dragoon Guards was still horsed, by 1938 it had been mechanised and the horses retired. The regiment were based in Warburg Barracks for three years before moving to Colchester.
From a collection of 1,701 photographs taken by Gale and Polden, Aldershot, showing British regiments and corps.
