Photographs and history of the 17th lancers, during the reign of Queen Victoria.

The value of light cavalry having been fully recognised in 1759, George II decided on increasing the establishment by adding five new light dragoon regiments to the army.  Of these, the 17th Lancers was one, and was first numbered the 18th; but on the reduction of Lord Aberdour's regiment in 1763 it took rank as the 17th.  Its first colonel was John Hale, who had carried home the despatches announcing the victory at Quebec; and in memory of his late chief, General Wolfe, he obtained permission for the new regiment to bear on its standard the Death's Head with the motto "Or Glory", which it still retains.

Though it sent a detachment to serve under the Marquis of Granby in 1761, when it was dressed in scarlet coats with white epaulets and facings, and a leather helmet ornamented with white metal and a scarlet horse hair crest, it saw no serious service until 1775, when it was despatched to America.  It volunteered to send a dismount detachment to assist in the questionable victory at Bunker's Hill; landed in Long Island with Sir William Howe, to follow the retreating Americans to New York; and at "White Plains", "Fort Washington", and Rhode Island took part in the very ineffective campaigns of 1776.  Throughout 1777-78 it accompanied Howe in the equally abortive operations which culminated in the evacuation of Philadelphia and the retreat of the British Army to New York.  Its work was undoubtedly well done, and the history of the regiment shows no more harassing and exhausting duty than that which the men had to perform in this useless war.  They were attached to Tarleton's "legion", the one force of mixed "provincials" and regulars which did good service, and with it accompanied Sir Henry Clinton in his expedition to South Carolina.  The whole history of the American war is one of desultory and disconnected operations.  This was one.  The siege of Charleston followed by its capture; and that by some unimportant "affairs" at "Wacsaw" and "Camden", where Gales was defeated, and at "Cowpens".  It is somewhat amusing to read in the official history that the "American Colonel" Washington called out during the fight, "Where is now the boasting Tarleton?" when Cornet Patterson of the 17th rode up to attack him, and was killed by Washington's orderly.  Even as late as 1841 there were men in England unwilling to give to the first President of the United States the grade of General, which he had earned by faithful service towards his native land, and by winning with the rawest levies a wonderful success.

There were gleams of real heroism in this fateful war which are worth recording.  Corporal O'Lavery of the 17th was sent to accompany the bearer of an important despatch; attacked on the way, the latter was killed, but the Corporal, hiding the paper in his wound, rode on with it till he fell from loss of blood.  But his message was safe and was delivered, and the appreciation of his gallantry is shown by the monument his chief, Lord Rawdon, raised to his memory in his native county of Down.

In 1783 the 17th Lancers returned home, and their uniform was changed from scarlet to blue.  After this they saw various but unimportant service in Ireland, the West Indies, Holland, Monte Video, and Buenos Ayres, where they acted as dismounted troops.  The official history of the regiment records a curious fact which, illustrating as it does the varied service of the regiment before its present battle roll was tabulated, is worth mentioning.  In four successive years it celebrated the King's birthday in the four quarters of the world.  "In 1806, in Europe, in England; in 1807, in America, at Monte Video; in 1808, in Africa, at the Cape of Good Hope; and in 1809, in Asia, at Surat.

Meanwhile, from South America it had gone by the Cape to India.  The uniform, both "field day" and "review" order, was striking at this time.  The dress was still blue, with a scarlet "girdle", but the head covering was, in the former, a tall conical cap with a plume in the top; and in the latter case a helmet with a ridge of wool apparently from front to rear, with a tall white plume at the side.  There is no apparent record of a similar dress, so it was probably a "Colonel's fancy".

From 1810 to 1822, when it returned to England and was constituted Lancers, it was continuously employed in minor operations against Burding, Anjar (in Cutch), the Pindarees, and Bheels.  No regiment seems to have changed its uniform more.  In 1817 the dark blue coat and pale blue overalls with white facings was surmounted by a broad topped shako with a tall plume in front; the Lancer dress of 1824 had a red and white plume in the lance cap, aiguillettes, and epaulets on the coat; and in 1829 the general colour of the uniform was dark blue, with a white top to the lance cap, in the case of officers, and a black plume; in 1832 the coat was red, with epaulets, the trouser stripe was also red, and the plume still black.  Now, with the uniform, both facings and plume are white.

In the Crimea the regiment shared in the battle of the Alma, and still more in the glory of the Light cavalry charge at Balaklava, where they were in front line.  Lieutenant-Colonel Morris led the regiment with nine troop leaders and subalterns, but when the guns were reached five of the subordinates had fallen, Winter and Thompson dead. the others desperately wounded.  With the shattered remnants of the regiment, now broken up into groups, the wild charge continued.  Morris ran the leader of the Russian cavalry through, but unable to withdraw his sword from the body of his adversary, was severely wounded, and fell from his horse, to be wounded a second time by the Cossacks who surrounded him.  The he surrendered; but as no one remained to make him prisoner, he attempted to retreat on a loose horse, which fell with him, crushing his leg.  Extricating himself, he fell senseless by the side of his dead friend Nolan, to be rescued by Dr Mouatt of the Inniskillings, as already related by Sergeant-Major Wooden, both of whom won the Cross for Valour; the latter for "proceeding, under a heavy fire, to his assistance when he was lying very dangerously wounded in an exposed situation".  Two other men of the 17th won the same distinction in the campaign; the one, Troop Sergeant Major John Berryman, who, present at the Alma, was engaged in the pursuit at Mackenzie's farm, capturing three Russian prisoners; and in the Balaklava charge, where his horse was shot, he "stopped on the field with a wounded officer (Captain Webb of the 11th Hussars) amidst a shower of shot and shell, although repeatedly told by that officer to consult his own safety and leave him; but he refused to do so, and on Sergeant John Farrell coming by, with his assistance carried Captain Webb out of the range of the guns".  For his share in this cool and gallant action Quartermaster-Sergant Farrell was also decorated, he having also had his horse killed under him in the charge.

The 17th also bear on their appointments "Inkerman", where they suffered the loss of one officer and some men, forming at the time part of the Light Brigade, which the numbered only about 200 men!

They served next in "Central India" after the Mutiny was broken, and in 1879 proceeded to South Africa with the reinforcements ordered by Lord Chelmsford.  They were brigaded with the Kin's Dragoon Guards, under General Marshall, and were present at the reconnaissance in the direction of the Erzungayan Hill, on the 5th June, where their adjutant, Lieutenant E. F. Cockayne-Frith, was killed; and later on at Ulundi were represented by two squadrons, commanded by Colonel Drury-Lowe.  When, at 9.25am on that day, Lord Chelmsford gave the order "Go at them, Lowe, but don't pursue too far", they dispersed the broken fragments of the last Zulu attack to meet a close mass of the enemy concealed in a donga, under whose fire fell Captain Wyatt Edgell and several men.  But the charge continued and broke these also, though, strangely enough, lances were slung, and the work done with the sword.

One Victoria Cross, in addition to those already named, has been won by a former officer of the regiment, the Lieutenant H. Evelyn Wood, now commanding the Aldershot division.  For in 1858, during the action of Sindwaho, when in command of a troop of the 3rd Light Cavalry, he attacked with much gallantry, almost single handed, a body of rebels who had made a stand, and whom he routed; also for having subsequently, near Sindhora, gallantly advanced with a Duffadar and Sowar of Beaton's Horse, and rescued from a band of robbers a Potail; Chenum Singh, whom they had captured and carried off to the jungles, where they intended to hang him.

Their several names are "The Death or Glory Boys", from their regimental badge and their origin; "Bingham's Dandies", from their colonel, who was punctiliously careful as to the fit of the men's uniforms; and, lastly, the title "Duke of Cambridge's Own" was conferred on them in 1876, in honour of the Commander-in-Chief, who once served in the regiment.

Extract from "The British Army and Auxiliary Forces" Colonel C. Cooper King, R.M.A. , 1894 

T. LAWRENCE  (Sergeant)  17th Lancers              On august 7th 1900, Sergeant Lawrence was on patrol duty with Private Hayman, when they were attacked by about fourteen of the enemy.  Private Hayman?s horse was hit, and in falling threw its rider, dislocating his shoulder.  Lawrence went at once to his comrade?s help, dragged him from under the wounded anmal, set him on his own horse, telling him to ride towards the picket.  He then took Hayman?s carbine, and with his own as well kept the enemy at a distance until the wounded man was safely out of range, when he commenced to retire on foot, followed by the Boers for two miles and keeping them off until he received assistance.   H.M., so nobly earned presented the King in London the Victoria Cross, to Sergeant Lawrence on august 12th 1902.

JOHN FARRELL (Quartermaster-Sergeant) 17th Lancers           On October 25th 1854 after the charges at the battle of Balaklava, when Farrell?s horse was shot from under him, Captain Webb was severely wounded.  Farrell and Berryman (V.C.) carried the officer as far as the pain of his wounds would allow, and, when a stretcher was obtained, he assisted Berryman and a Private of the 13th Dragoons (Malcone V.C.) to carry him from the field.  Farrell died at Secunderabad, India on August 4th 1865.  

JOHN BERRYMAN  (Troop-Sergeant-Major, afterwards Major) 17th (The Duke of Cambridge?s Own) Lancer        Sergeant-Major Berryman was once of the many heroes who fought right through the Crimean War.  He was ?mentioned? for Alma, Balaklava,  Inkerman, and Mackenzie?s Farm, and at the last place captured three Russian soldiers close up to their own guns.  At Balaklava his horse was shot under him in the charge, yet he remained with a wounded and dying officer (Captain Webb), whom he carried out of immediate range of the cannon.  For his bravery at Inkerman, on February 24th 1857, he was specially mentioned in the London Gazette.  Born on July 28th 1825, he died on June 27th 1896. 

 

CHARLES WOODEN  (Sergeant-Major, afterwards Quarter-Master 104th Bengal Fusiliers) 17th Lancers            On October 26th 1854, after the battle of Balaklava, Sergeant-Major Wooden went to the assistance of Lieut. ?Colonel Morris, C.B., and rescued him when lying exposed to a very heavy fire thereby saving his life.

A Dismounted Lancer at Skirmishing Display (1896)

Here we have a picture which will serve to remind many of the Military Displays at the Agricultural Hall, and to others will explain the kind of fighting which Dr Jameson's troopers made with the Boers at Krugerdorp.  It is a pretty idea, teaching a cavalry horse to lie down and serve as a living screen, from behind which his rider can fire in safety, and moreover, has its use in warfare.  In the present instance the dismounted horseman (Rough Rider Corporal Long, of the 17th Lancers) is one of a line of skirmishers ordered to use their carbines on foot, against an enemy whom they are unable to get at owing to the nature of the intervening obstacles.

A Long Service Veteran : The Drum Horse of the 17th Lamcers (1896)

The 17th Lancer have justly a high regard for their drum-horse, who carries his sixteen (or as it has been reported, twenty) years, lightly enough.  His rider, Private Austen, himself a soldier of eighteen years' service, is ever ready to champion the drum-horse of his regiment as the finest drum-horse in the Queen's Army, and to tell with what a display of conscious pride the old horse bears himself when marching at the head of the regiment.  Private Austen has taught his charge moreover some curious tricks, at which the animal has proved himself an apt pupil.  The old horse is believed to be of Hanoverian descent, and was taken over from the 11th Hussars in 1890, when the 17th Lancers arrived from India.

The Guard of the 17th (Duke of Cambridge's Own) Lancers (1896)

Here we have a turn out of the regimental guard of the 17th Lancers, taken one day on duty at Hounslow Barracks, where the famous "Death or Glory Boys" were quartered.  The guard here shown consists of three troopers and a corporal, on the right of the party, with a trumpeter boy in undress.  Hardly another regiment in the Queen's Service makes so effective a display on parade as do the 17th Lancers, with their blue uniforms and white facings - white plastron on the chest of the tunic, white plume and square top to the cap, double white trouser stripes, and bright white and red lance pennons. 

Saddlers of the 17th Lancers at Work (1896)

How all important a position the saddlers' department - which deals with all that perains to keeping in order the horse-gear and riding equipment - occupies in a cavalry regiment, goes, of course, without saying.  A horse with a sore back is little more fit for work than one dead lame, and ill-fitting saddles, the cause of sore backs more than anything else, come primarily from badly stuffed saddles.  Our photograph shows some of the saddlers of the 17th Lancers at work, the man on the right attending to an officer's saddle cloth under the instructions of a sergeant of the regiment.  Most of the leather work connected with the men's equipment also comes to the saddlers for keeping in order.

A Captain of the 17th (Duke of Cambridge's Own) Lancers. (1896)

There is quite an epitome of regimental and cavalry history in the uniform of the 17th Lancers, a Captain of which famous regiment, in review order uniform, is shown in our illustration.  The white facings recall in their colour the original facings of all British cavalry in days of our earliest light dragoons; their badge of a Death's Head and the motto "Or Glory", recall General Wolfe, soon after whose death the regiment was raised and in whose memory the badge and motto were first chosen.  It was from Napoleon's Polish lancer that we adopted the lance into the Service, in the year after Waterloo, and with it the peculiar distinctive Polish schapka, or square flat-topped cap with its feather plume.

"Lizzie", The Pet Bear of the 17th Lancers (1896)

Of the many regimental pets in the Army not many, probably, have a more interesting story attaching to them than the subject of our illustration, "Lizzie", of the 17th Lancers.  Her mother was shot in Cashmere, eight years ago, by Prince Adolphus of Teck, who brought the cub to Lucknow, where the regiment was stationed, and gave her as a present to his troop.  Shortly after this the cub was lost for a year.  Then one day a man came round with a performing bear, which was recognized as "Lizzie".  Since then "Lizzie" has remained with the 17th, with whom she came to England in 1889.  She is a great pet with all ranks, for her own part reciprocating the affection, specially in favour of Corporal Baker, her particular guardian, who is shown in this illustration.  "Lizzie" lives on bread and milk, jams, and fruits, and goes every day to the canteen for a pint.  She takes to water, and enjoys a swim in the summer.

HENRY EVELYN WOOD  (Lieutenant, now Field Marshal, G.C.B., G.C.M.G., D.L.)  17th Lancers  A short time afterwards, near Sindhora, the enemy had seized a Patel, named Chemmum Singh.  Hearing that they intended to hang the wretched man for his loyalty to us, Lieutenant Wood took about twelve men, and started in pursuit.  After a ride of some miles they came upon the mutineers, about seventy in number, encamped and asleep.  Taking two men, he crept up to them, fired a volley, dashed among them, and rescued the man.  General Sir Evelyn Wood, son of the Rev. Sir John Page Wood, Bart, was born at Braintree, Essex, and February 9th 1838.  Educated at Marlborough, he entered the Navy in 1852, and was A.D.C. to Captain Peel, V.C., in the Crimean War, when only sixteen, behaving with such gallantry that Captain Lushington recommended him for the Victoria Cross, which was not awarded him.  He was severely wounded at the attack on the Redan, mentioned in despatches, made of the Legion of Honour, and obtained the medal and two clasps, Medjidie and Turkish medal.  Invalided home, he left the Navy, and in 1855 joined the 13th Light Dragoons as Cornet, becoming later Lieutenant, and in 1857 exchanged into the 17th Lancers, serving with that fine body of men though the Indian Mutiny.  He organized the native forces in the Ashanti War 1873; commanded a column in the Gaika War 1878; also in the Zulu War 1879; was command of the forces in Transvall War 1881; commanded in Egyptian War, 1882; and was head of the lines of communication in Nile Expedition 1884; commanded the Chatham District 1882-3; Eastern District 1886-8; Aldershot Division 1889-93; Q.G. to the forces 1893-7; A.G. 1897-1901.

Last Review Before the Charge by Mark Churms.


Last Review Before the Charge by Mark Churms.

In the Spring of 1854 the Seventeenth lancers, the Death or Glory Boys, a nickname derived from the regiments dashingly sinister skull and crossbones badge received orders to make ready for the Crimea. The Seventeenth was to be brigaded with the 8th and 11th Hussars and the 4th and 13th Light dragoons to comprise what was said at the time to be The finest Brigade of Light cavalry ever to leave the shores of England. Prior to departure for the front. The seventeenth is reviewed by its Colonel in Chief, the Duke of Cambridge wearing scarlet full dress in contrast to the dark blue of the seventeenth. A bit of swagger before the Charge which would secure the regiments place in history.

Relief of the Light Brigade by Richard Caton Woodville.


Relief of the Light Brigade by Richard Caton Woodville.

Depicting the Light Brigade at the moment of reaching the Russian guns. Shown are the 11th Hussars and the 17th Lancers. The all time classic image of the disastrous Charge of the Light Brigade which included the 17th lancers, who lead the charge. Lord Cardigan is shown on the left, dressed in his 11th Hussars uniform. The Light Brigade were being kept in reserve, after the successful charge of the heavy brigade, but the slow advance of the British Infantry to take advantage of the heavy brigades success had given the Russian forces time to take away Artillery pieces from captured redoubts. Raglan, after seeing this ordered the light brigade to advance rapidly to the front, follow the enemy and try to prevent the enemy carrying away the guns. This message taken by Captain Nolan, to Lord Lucan, the cavalry Commander. One of the Officers of Raglans Staff, urged Lucan, who could only see the main Russian Artillery position at the head of a valley. Lord Lucan rode over to Cardigan .........
