The 6th (Inniskilling) Dragoons was a cavalry regiment in the British Army, first raised in 1689. It saw service for three centuries, before being amalgamated into the 5th/6th Dragoons (later the 5th Inniskilling Dragoon Guards, then finally the 5th Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards) in 1922.
One of their most notable battles was the Battle of the Boyne in 1690. They also fought with distinction at the Battle of Waterloo in the Charge of the Union Brigade and again during the Crimean War as part of the successful Charge of the Heavy Brigade against superior numbers at the Battle of Balaklava.

World War I sounded the death knell for mounted cavalry as it became apparent that technology had moved forward with greater destructive power and made horsed cavalry redundant on the modern battlefield. The British Army reorganised and reduced its cavalry corps by disbanding or amalgamating many of its famous cavalry regiments in 1922 as part of the Geddes Reforms.

The regiment was originally formed in 1689 as James Wynne's Regiment of Dragoons. Disbanded in 1799 before being reformed in 1858, keeping its old number and title, but losing precedence, being ranked after the 17th Lancers. It was immediately converted into a lancer regiment and titled 5th (or Royal Irish) Regiment of Dragoons (Lancers). In 1861, it was renamed the 5th (or Royal Irish) Lancers and then the 5th (Royal Irish) Lancers. The regiment served in India and a section served in Egypt in 1885, taking part in the battles at Suakin. It served with distinction in the Second Boer War from 1899 to 1902, gaining battle honours at Battle of Elandslaagte and The Defence of Ladysmith.
The regiment then returned to England where it stayed until the outbreak of World War I, when it became part of the British Expeditionary Force, sailing from Dublin to France in August 1914, and saw action continually from 1914 to 1918 in some of the war's bloodiest battles. During the battle of Bourlon Wood George William Burdett Clare received the Victoria Cross posthumously. The 5th (Royal Irish) Lancers won a total of 20 battle honours during the Great War.

The 5th (Royal Irish) Lancers also has the grim honour of being the regiment of the last British soldier to die in the Great War, killed by a sniper as the regiment advanced into Mons a short time before the armistice came into effect.
The regiment was renamed 5th Royal Irish Lancers and disbanded in 1921, but a squadron was reconstituted in 1922 and immediately amalgamated with the 16th The Queen's Lancers to become the 16th/5th Lancers (later the 16th/5th Queen's Royal Lancers). In 1993, this regiment was amalgamated with the 17th/21st Lancers to form the Queen's Royal Lancers.

The Carabiniers moved straight to India for five years in 1903, where it paraded at the 1906 Bangalore Durbar before the future George V.

Deployed in the first month of the First World War as part of the British Expeditionary Force. It served throughout the First World War on the Western Front, fighting at Mons, the Marne, in the first two battles of Ypres, the Somme, Arras and Cambrai.

The regiment spent the first four post-war years keeping the peace in Ireland during its run-up to civil war, before being redeployed to India via Aldershot. There, in 1922, it was merged with the 3rd Dragoon Guards (Prince of Wales's) to form the 3rd/6th Dragoon Guards. The carabiniers title did live on, however, since the new unit was renamed the 3rd Carabiniers (Prince of Wales's Dragoon Guards) six years after its formation.
