Excerpt from The Story of the Household Cavalry, Vol. 1

The chief aim of this Book will have been fulfilled if its perusal should remind those now serving in the Household Cavalry that devotion to duty, alike in peace and in war, is for them an inherited tradition - that in long bygone days, not less than in more recent times, both Life Guards and Blues exhibited the same high qualities which in the nineteenth century elicited the unaffected admiration and unstinted praise Of the foremost military authorities.

The references strewn up and down the following pages may serve to indicate with sufficient particularity the greater number of the authorities consulted. Every effort has been made to derive information from the best, and especially from original and hitherto unknown, sources.

I have, in the first place, to express my most earnest and dutiful thanks to the august colonel-in-chief of the Household Cavalry, His Majesty the King, for his gracious permission to make use of the Royal Library at Windsor Castle, where a considerable portion of my task has been executed - with the additional advantage that I was able to seek the expert counsel and rely on the kindly proffered advice of the Librarian, Mr. John Fortescue.
