17th Hussars mounted

Not sure what Regiment the dragoon is in. They have flowers tucked in their tunics and it appears they are stuck in the rain

Great photo .Thanks for the post .Photos are another world of colleting for me .
H R 17 was part of A K X .
The 19. Kav. Brigade had Oldenburg D R 19 plain black collar and cuffs and black hair bush

20. Kav . Brigade had H R 17 and
Hannover Dragoon Regt 16 ; plain yellow collar and cuffs ( yellow in B & W sometimes looks dark in old photos )
also black hair bush
so it could be either Dragoon regiment .I can't see if the helmet has the " Waterloo " banner
on it's front plate .Nor can I tell if the Oldenburg coat of arms is on the helmet front plate ?
