The volunteer yeomanry units were originally formed in the 1790s as a response to the invasion threat from Revolutionary France. However, they were also used to support the civil authority to put down political and social disturbances. This continued until the mid-nineteenth century when police forces took over this role. The yeomanry then concentrated on local defence. Members of the yeomanry were not obliged to serve overseas without their individual consent.
