The 3rd The King's Own Hussars was a cavalry regiment of the British Army, first raised in 1685.
It saw service for three centuries, including the First World War and the Second World War
The formation of the 3rd The King's Own Hussars can be traced back to 1685. The advent of the Monmouth Rebellion in that year led the King of England, James II, to expand the military forces under his command to suppress the rebellion. A number of infantry and cavalry units were raised during 1685, including a unit of three troops of cavalry detached from the Duke of Somerset's Royal Dragoons on 16 June by the order of the King. The three troop captains were ordered to recruit a number of volunteers from the regions around London, including Middlesex, Berkshire and Essex, and then proceed to Acton in Middlesex. Once the unit had arrived, it was ordered to guard the northern approaches to the City of London against any attempts by the forces commanded by the Duke of Monmouth to attack the city. When Monmouth's forces were defeated at the Battle of Sedgemoor on 6 July 1685, the unit was still stationed in Middlesex and had not encountered any rebel troops. In the aftermath of the failed rebellion, the original three troops were combined with three more cavalry troops, one independent and two newly raised, to form The Queen Consort's Regiment of Dragoons
Tradition Magazine 1-76
Around 1964 Tradition began publishing a groundbreaking, prestigious magazine on military uniforms
which went under the title Tradition and following the success of the magazine
the model soldier range and their shop were similarly named.
Many leading military authors and artists, past and present, were at the time contributors to
Tradition magazine which ceased publication in 1974.
Fortunately, a number of past issues of this famous magazine are still available.
We are now reproducing the Tradition Magazine no longer in stock.
Each issue contains many articles on military uniforms and related subjects
fully illustrated in black and white and colour
