The 14th/20th King's Hussars was a cavalry regiment of the British Army. Originally styled the 14th/20th Hussars, the regiment was created in 1922 by the amalgamation of the 14th King's Hussars and the 20th Hussars, as part of the reductions in the Army after the First World War. The honorific King's was added back into the title in 1936. The 14th were originally raised as Dormer's Dragoons in 1715 during the First Jacobite Rising. The regiment became light dragoons in 1776 and were designated as hussars in 1861. The 20th were raised as light dragoons in 1759 and became hussars in 1862. In 1941, a cadre of personnel from the regiment was used to form the 26th Hussars. The 14th/20th were amalgamated in 1992 with The Royal Hussars (Prince of Wales's Own) to become The King's Royal Hussars. The battle honours of regiment include the combined battle honours of the 14th King's Hussars and the 20th Hussars, plus: The Second World War: Bologna, Medicina, Italy 1945 Wadi al Batin, Gulf 1991.
