Tosh! Joined the Earl of Mar's army in 1715? I think not. If you want to get noticed look unique; wearing bearskins and riding greys is OTT but ensured that that they got more attention than the other eight British heavy cavalry regiments that also took part in the charge.

School Essay Prize, runner up 2018.

- and, God bless him, reads like it.

"The Scots Greys, formally known at the time as the Royal Regiment of Scots Dragoons"

You'd think he might at least give the regiment's correct title.

"You'd think he might at least give the regiment's correct title."

In the appendices he does mention 'The North British Dragoons', if it has any meaning for him.

Easy. "To charge!"

Tally Ho!

A very superficial account indeed. Absolutely no novelty, no critique of their role and hardly any account of the rest of the Union Brigade. Much of the "essay" is an account of the sequence of coalitions that opposed Napoleon and irrlevant.

Not your fault Tango. Thanks for trying as always
