Light dragoon helmet

Emsdorf Helmet, 1774. This style of helmet was worn by the 15th Light Dragoons between 1770-1784. It takes it name from the Battle of Emsdorf 1760, in which the regiment pursued and defeated a large force of French Infantry. Emsdorf was the first Battle Honour to be awarded to a regiment of the British Army. From here
