The 17th/21st Lancers was a Cavalry Regiment of the British Army. It was formed by the amalgamation of the 17th Lancers and the 21st Lancers in 1922. The Regiment was mechanised in 1938 and, after service in the Second World War, it amalgamated with the 16th/5th The Queen's Royal Lancers to form the Queen's Royal Lancers in 1993. Early post WW2 , the Regiment was posted to Greece on internal security duties. In October 1947, it deployed to the Suez Canal Zone and re-equipped as an armoured car regiment; it then moved to Palestine in 1948.
