For sale is a WW1 1st Dragoon Guards Changing Guard Postcard By Dainty Novels. This is in good condition.
The 1st Dragoon Guards could trace their history back as far as 1685 and was to see service throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. By the time this postcard was produced, they had just completed service in the Boer War including using their mobility on the South African plains to chase down Boer General Christiaan de Wet. Here we see two lines of dragoons, with their distinctive metal helmets each mounting a tall horse hair plume. They wear white leather belts to hold the scabbards for their swords, which are drawn and carried at the slope.
