Horse­men from his­tory

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

MIGHT any COUN­TRY LIFE read­ers have sto­ries or mem­o­ra­bilia of the Duke of Manch­ester’s Light Horse? I in­clude a pho­to­graph of two cav­al­ry­men on horse­back (right). The Duke of Manch­ester’s was a vol­un­teer reg­i­ment that ex­isted for 22 years, but never went into bat­tle. It con­sisted of lo­cal Bed­ford­shire and Hunt­ing­don farm­ers, who each had to pro­vide two horses and at­tend drills at Kim­bolton Cas­tle, Cam­bridgeshire. The Hig­gins Mu­seum in Bed­ford is col­lat­ing sto­ries and pho­to­graphs as lit­tle to date has been recorded. Sarah Flynn, by email
