Military History

The 14th Dragoons
Lodge No. 273 (IC) 1756-1827

The 14th Dragoons, known as Dormer’s Dragoons, was raised in 1715 and fought in both Jacobite Rebellions of 1715 and 1745. From 1747 they spent the next 48 years in Ireland, from which they became known as an Irish regiment.

In 1756 a Military Lodge was warranted by the Grand Lodge of Ireland and was officially the 14th Dragoons Lodge No. 273.

The 14th was the second dragoon regiment to be converted, in 1776, from dragoons to light dragoons. The men and horses were expected to be smaller, between 5ft 5.5ins and 5ft 9ins for the men, and 14.3 and 15.1 hands for the horses, of ‘the nag or hunter kind’.

They were later known as the 14th Hussars. and in 1922 amalgamated with the 20th Hussars to become the 14/20 Kings Hussars.
