                                                                                                          The original "Manners Fork" made in London in 1632 by Richard Crosse is the earliest recorded silver fork made by an English workshop and is now in the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Having seen service in many theatres of war they were redesignated the 17th Lancers in 1823 and in 1826 Lord Bingham (later 3rd Earl of Lucan) purchased their Lieutenant Colonelcy. He invested heavily in the Regiment and they were sometimes called "Bingham's Dandies". Under Bingham they were part of the Charge of the Light Brigade he commanded. Following several amalgamations they now form part of the Royal Lancers.
