A 19th Century Ist Dragoons Helmet & Vintage Hat Stand
Period: 19th Century
Raised in the 17th century, the Royal Dragoons were one of the UK’ oldest Calvery regiments. They had a distinguish history throughout the last 300 years serving in many notable campaigns including The Battle Of Waterloo. The Ist dragoons were disbanded and merged into other Household Calvery regiments at the beginning of the twentieth century. The helmet is in good order and as is normal, the inner leather liner has been restored. The helmet sits on a vintage French hat stand that dates the same period as the helmet.
