The Guard Hussar

husarThe guard hussar regiment's mounted squadron is a special unit. Their primary task is to place mounted escorts and commando forces at the service of the regent, and to train the guard hussars for various functions in the mobilisation force, such as riflemen, nursing assistants, etc.

The mounted squadron's history, traditions and uniforms can be traced back in a direct line to the Hussar Regiment set up by King Frederik V on 10 February 1762, in order to have a light mobile cavalry to face the Cassacks in the impending war with Russia.
