Reference KK Vol 2 item 1913 page 17

The 23rd Hussars was a cavalry regiment of the British Army raised in World War II in existence from 1940 to 1946. It had no lineal connection with the earlier 23rd Regiment of (Light) Dragoons (1794–1802).
landed in France in June 1944, taking heavy casualties in the Battle of Normandy. It spearheaded Operation Epsom, reaching the Odon river between Mouen and Mondrainville. It was embroiled in Operation Goodwood, where its assault on Bourguébus Ridge on the first day was brought to a halt. After Goodwood, the losses of armour within the division were so high that the 24th Lancers were disbanded and its remnants absorbed by the 23rd Hussars. The Regiment then took part in Operation Bluecoat, intended to secure the key road junction of Vire and the high ground of Mont Pinçon, which would allow the American exploitation of their breakout on the western flank of the Normandy beachhead. The 11th Armoured Division was subsequently attached to XXX Corps, which captured Flers, Putanges and Argentan in the battle of the Falaise pocket.

15 / 19th HUSSARS CAP BADGE
A fine bi metal Kings Crown version, with slider to reverse.

Reference K & K Vol 1 item 778 page 215.

The 15th The King's Hussars was a cavalry regiment in the British Army. First raised in 1759, it saw service over two centuries, before being amalgamated with the 19th Royal Hussars into the 15th/19th The King's Royal Hussars in 1922.

One of the regiment’s officers in the Crimea was Louis Edward Nolan, whose behaviour as an aide-de-camp helped launch the disastrous Charge of the Light Brigade, in which he and the regiment took part.

The regiment spent the whole of the First World War on reconnaissance and dismounted duties on the Western Front, before being merged with the 19th Royal Hussars (Queen Alexandra’s Own) in 1922 to form the 15th/19th The King’s Royal Hussars.
