This painting shows the baggage wagons of 1st King's Dragoon Guards outside St Nicholas Church (now the Cathedral of Newcastle), Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and the hardships of the Regiment’s move between stations. With its hay cart, bustle, and boxes it gives an idea of the amount of supplies needed to move the soldiers, wives, sweethearts and children from one station to another.

Recognisable in the bottom left of the picture is the face of Loveless Overton, an officer's servant. Loveless Overton was born in St Thomas, Bridgetown, Barbados and enlisted for unlimited service in the King’s Dragoon Guards in Manchester on the 25th March 1800, aged 20 years old.
