...and the first unit to be finished in '16 - The 'Grey Dragoons', the Royal Regiment of Dragoons, later to be known as the Scots Greys!

Until 1685 their uniform was grey coats and it was this which originally gave rise to the descriptor 'grey', not their horses.

I'm quite pleased with the horse-holder with piglet under his arm!

Superb looking unit Jim! :D

As Ben pointed out the scene with the pig my first thought was about the bloke in the movie Waterloo discussing with Wellington the whereabout of the pigs parents! :lol: :lol: :lol:
