The Regimental Museum interprets and displays over 300 years’ history of the only Scottish cavalry regiment in the British regular Army. The museum exhibits a wide range of objects including weapons, uniforms, medals and paintings. These have been assembled to portray the story of the antecedent regiments that formed or were associated with The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards: 3rd Dragoons Guards (Prince of Wales’s Own); 6th Dragoon Guards (The Carabiniers); 3rd Carabiniers (Prince of Wales’s Dragoon Guards); The Royal Scots Greys (2nd Dragoons); and 25th Dragoons. The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards (SCOTSDG) is a working regiment whose soldiers operate in a role that is much the same as that of their predecessors. Proud of their regiment’s history, the men and women of SCOTSDG serve their country sure in the knowledge that they are, as the regimental motto states, ‘Second to None’.
