20th Hussars Battle Honours

Here is a list of those Battle Honours awarded to the 20th (XHX) Hussars, you may notice that some of those battle honours are no longer shown on the 14th/20th King’s Hussars or current (KRH) Guidon!

The Peninsula Guidon of the 20th (XHX) Hussars

It is quite normal for Regiments to record all the Battles they have taken part in and subsequently been awarded that Battle Honour. But due to the available space on a Guidon, Colour or Standard the Regiments on amalgamation have to agree between themselves what Battle Honours would be included on the ‘new’ Guidon, hence them being omitted from it.
