The Queen's Own Yorkshire Dragoons was a Yeomanry Cavalry Regiment of the British Army in existence from 1794 to 1956. The Regiment was formed as Volunteer Cavalry known as the South West Yorkshire Yeomanry Cavalry in 1794 during the French Revolutionary Wars. In 1844, it changed its name to the First West Yorkshire Yeomanry Cavalry. Finally, in 1897, after the Sheffield squadron had the honour of escorting Her Majesty, Queen Victoria, at Sheffield and being represented at the Royal celebration of that year, the Regiment became known as the Queens Own Yorkshire Dragoons. The Yeomanry was not intended to serve overseas, but due to the string of defeats during Black Week in December 1899, the British Government realised they were going to need more troops than just the regular army and the Regiment provided Yeomanry Battalions to serve in the Boer Wars. The Regiment was converted to an armoured role during the Second World War. In 1956, it merged with the Yorkshire Hussars and the East Riding of Yorkshire Yeomanry to form the Queen's Own Yorkshire Yeomanry.
