Hodson's Horse was a new British regiment created during the Indian Mutiny in 1857. This irregular light cavalry of two thousand horses was named after its leader, Major William Stephen Raikes Hodson (1821-1858). The regiment included British military officers as well as native soldiers, many of whom were Sikhs from the region of Punjab.
