Queens Own Hussars

The Queen's Own Hussars, normally referred to by the abbreviation QOH, was a cavalry regiment of the British Army, formed from the amalgamation of the 3rd The King's Own Hussars and the 7th Queen's Own Hussars at Candahar Barracks, Tidworth in 1958.

The regiment was posted to Aden in 1967, and to Hohne, Germany in 1970. It was stationed at Hobart Barracks, Detmold from 1977 to 1983 as part of 4th Armoured Division. During the 70s and 80s, the regiment spent time in Canada training for the impending Russian invasion, but it also undertook a number of tours of Northern Ireland.

The regiment was amalgamated with The Queen's Royal Irish Hussars on 1 September 1993, to form The Queen's Royal Hussars (The Queen's Own and Royal Irish).
