The Blue Hussars

_________________________________________

The Mounted Escort Unit known as The Blue Hussars was formed in 1932 prior to the Eucharistic Congress which was being hosted in Ireland. The Uniform, it was decided, to follow that of the 8th King's Royal Irish Hussars over Seán Keating's Modern - Celtic Design. The only difference between the old British influenced version was the dark blue changed to a lighter Sapphire Blue.

The Blue Hussars became the Mounted Escort of the President Douglas Hyde in June 1938. In 1949 the Government abolished the Blue Hussars changing the horses for motorcycles. The alleged excuse at the time for the change was that motorcycles were more impressive & there was a lack of suitable Horses in the country. The 4th Motor Squadron took over the duties until it was changed to 2 Cavalry Squadron in 1955/56. They have escorted the President and foreign dignitaries until today and are based out of Cathal Brugha Barracks in Co. Dublin

BATTLE OF WARSAW 1920
The 18th decisive battle of history. Polish-Russian war. In the picture we can see the Polish soldiers with 36th Infantry Regiment "Academic Legion" (36pp "Legii Akademickiej") on the outskirts of Warsaw in August 1920.

This Regiment was established just few days after regaining the Independence in 1918 from the volunteer students of four Warsaw's universities.
