Overview of the Regiment
The Dragoons were raised for service in India. When hostilities there ceased they retired to Ireland. At the outbreak of American aggression the Regiment was sent to Canada. They arrived in Mid 1813. They were the only British Line Cavalry to serve in Canada during the war of 1812. They were also the only British Line Cavalry to serve in a mounted role in North America during the war. They did however serve with several provincial Dragoon Regiments from the Canadas. Of the five Squadrons belonging to the unit, three were sent to Canada. Two went almost directly to the Niagara region, 1st and 2nd Squadrons. 3rd squadron stayed south of Montreal playing a large part in thwarting the incursions of the Americans towards Montreal and Quebec city. The 4th Squadron followed in 1815.
