Famous British Cavalry and Armoured Regiments in miniature.
British Cavalry Regiments formed tank and armoured car squadrons in armoured divisions and brigades for Operation Overlord.
Our Tank Commander from 11th Hussars wears a colourful forage cap in the cherry red of this famous regiment.
The nickname 'The Cherry Pickers' dates to the Napoleonic Wars in Spain, and the colour is still in use with the regiment today.
The regiment wore its famous red trousers when it charged the Russian guns at Balclava with the rest of The Light Brigade.
For D-Day the Regiment formed the Corps Armoured Car regiment for XXX Corps, and fought through Normandy and into Holland with this Corps in Market Garden.
PLEASE NOTE THE NEW SMALLER BASE.
