    On the occasion of Rajasthan Day, the 61st Cavalry Regiment of Indian Army displayed a dashing Risala of 130 fine bred horses during Mounted Review Parade here at Rambagh Polo Ground, Jaipur.

    This epoch event's parade was reviewed by Lt Gen Gyan Bhushan, PVSM, UYSM, AVSM, VSM, GOC-in-C, South Western Command; after the dazzling warriors of the Cavalry gathered on horse backs varying their lance stances at the hint of a command.
    Adding to the glamour was the '17th Rajputana Rifles' Band that played its tunes with authenticity and style.
    People of the Pink City welcomed the Gallop of 130 Cavalry units with dropping jaws and continuous applause. It was an awesome treat.

    The 61st Cavalry of the IA today balances the march of Indian martial tradition into the world of 21st century's technology warfare with unique elan.

    The Polish cavalry regiment charged a German Infantry division and not tanks. Later on, APCs arrived and scattered the Polish. The initial charge was successful and bought time for the Polish forces to withdraw.

    My grandfather was in the Imperial German Army ~1910.

    As for the Polish Uhlans (ulnai), here is one account:
