This is 'The Historical Record of the Seventh or Queen's Own Hussars' published in 1842, compiled by Richard Cannon Principal Clerk to the Adjutant General's Department.

This was part of a project inaugurated in 1836 to record the services of every regiment in the British Army, realising the plan launched by Frederick Duke of York in 1822, to a create a National Military Record.

Over the next seventeen years, a Historical Record of each of the existing cavalry regiments and of forty-two regiments of foot were published, all but one compiled by Richard Cannon, who retired in 1854. Subsequently, continuations and independently published 'historical records' of other regiments were published.

Most of Cannon's 'Historical Records' are accessible via and can be found searching for 'Richard Cannon' or 'Great Britain Adjutant General's Office' via the search facility of the website, as here:
