"The Young man, born to this age of speed, can receive all the excitement he desires in a rush across country in a tank, which will carry him on the modern battlefield much more safely and effectively than the horse.
The mechanisation of the Cavalry may have come as a blow to the horse lover, but, though the horse has been replaced by an armoured vehicle, the esprit de corps and the great fighting traditions of our Cavalry remain stronger than ever."
