WSS: Hay's Grey Dragoons

My second unit of Dragoons is intended to represent Lord Hay's Regiment of Dragoons also known as the Grey Dragoons and eventually the Royal Scots Greys.  Originally raised in 1678 as three separate troops of Dragoons, they were regimented in 1694 as the Royal Regiment of Scots Dragoons and had become known for their grey mounts.  Lord John Hay was their Colonel from 1704 until his death in 1706.  They fought in all of Marlborough's famous battles.

Once again the figures are from Black Hat and the flag is from Warflag.
