Hi I have a figure from 2nd. Reg. Royal North British Regiment of Dragoons cir. 1854. But I am having a hard time finding anything that can help me out with uniform and kit. If anyone knows where I might be able to find some pics, I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi Michael

Try searching under the 2RNBD's better-known title of the Scots Greys. I guess from the 1854 date that the figure is uniformed for the Crimean War, when the Greys formed part of the Heavy Brigade. Their charge at Balaklava was a much greater success than the Light Brigade's.

The uniform should generally be the heavy cavalry standard of red jacket and blue-grey overall trousers, with a black bearskin instead of the usual helmet. Horses are grey of course

There's a not-very-good lithograph of the Scots Greys part of the charge on this site
