The 5th Royal Irish Lancers was a cavalry regiment of the British Army. The regiment was originally formed in 1689 by Brigadier James Wynne as James Wynne's Regiment of Dragoons. It fought at notable battles like Battle of the Boyne in July 1690, the Battle of Aughrim also July 1690. It went on to fight under the Duke of Marlborough at the Battle of Blenheim in August 1704 during the War of the Spanish Succession (Renamed the Royal Dragoons of Ireland in 1704), the Battle of Oudenarde in July 1708 and at the Battle of Malplaquet in September 1709. In 1861, it was renamed the 5th (or Royal Irish) Lancers and then the 5th (Royal Irish) Lancers. The regiment served in India between 1863 and 1888. They were sent to South Africa in February 1898. They were stationed at Ladysmith until October 1898, when they went to Pietermaritzburg, where they remained until the outbreak of the Second Boer War in October 1899. As one of two cavalry regiments stationed in South Africa on the outbreak of the Second Boer War, the regiment consequently took part in the early fighting. The regiment thus stayed in South Africa throughout the hostilities, ending on 31 May 1902. The regiment then returned to England where it stayed until the outbreak of World War I, when it became part of the British Expeditionary Force (BEF). It first saw action during the Battle of Mons in August 1914. The regiment was renamed 5th Royal Irish Lancers and disbanded in 1921, but a squadron was reconstituted in 1922 and immediately amalgamated with the 16th The Queen's Lancers to become the 16th/5th Lancers.
