The Ayrshire Yeomanry is the senior yeomanry regiment in Scotland and the seventh yeomanry Regiment in Great Britain. It was formed in 1793, at the onset of the French Revolutionary Wars, by Archibald, Lord Kennedy. The Regiment was then known as the Ayrshire Yeomanry Cavalry. In 1838, there was a general disbandment of Yeomanry Regiments, Only two - the Ayrshire Yeomanry and the Lanarkshire Yeomanry - were retained in Scotland. But the revival of enthusiasm for volunteer military service, which was inspired by the Crimean War, regularised the yeomanry structure in the UK. This is an excellent original, 1845 dated British Enfield [Tower Lock] made Cavalry Carbine To the Ayrshire Yeomanry Cavalry. It has all original wood work & metal work throughout. It has a heavy military percussion dolphin hammer and the lock plate is crisply stamped Crown VR (Victoria Regina) & 'Tower' (Enfield) with '1845' date.
