During the 2nd Mahratta War, Major General Sir Arthur Wellesley (later, the Duke of Wellington) commanding a small British force was greatly outnumbered by the Mahratta army which faced him in Berar. Seeing two villages on opposite banks of the Kaitna river, he correctly deduced that a ford lay between them. Crossing the ford with his troops, he deployed to face the enemy with his right and left flanks protected by the Juah and Kaitna rivers. The enemy were only able to deploy a small part of their force in the intervening space.  A formation of Mahratta cavalry charged the 74th Highlanders in flank and began capturing some of the British guns. In response, Lt Colonel Maxwell advanced with his cavalry brigade, which consisted of three regiments of Native Cavalry and the 19th Light Dragoons and charged the enemy's left, driving the Mahrattas into the river Juah. This river had less water in it than the Kaitna, and had very steep banks. The dragoons crossed the river and charged, driving the enemy off the field. However, so large was the enemy's force that the rear of the British position was still threatened. Maxwell's cavalry returned to the scene, and ended the day with another charge against the Mahratta infantry, though men and horses were exhausted. Maxwell was killed in the fighting.  Light dragoons in India wore a helmet, typically black, enamelled with a brass comb, a red mane and a black turban. They were armed with the 1796 pattern light cavalry sabre. A carbine hung by a swivel from the shoulder belt. Jackets were 'French grey'. In marching order the rolled cloak was carried in front of the saddle, with a leather valise behind. Saddle cloths were little worn. Harness was usually black. Light cavalry horses differed only very slightly from those of the 'heavies'.

The Allied breakthrough into the Normandy plain, against heavy German opposition. Filed marshall Montgomery claimed that Operation Goodwood had two major aims - the first being to break out from the beaches and the other to destroy the German armoured reserves and draw them away from the US forces that were preparing for Operation Cobra in the western sector.  The plan for the breakout began with a massive aerial bombardment, using the strategic air forces large bombers to decimate the German defending forces then Lt-General Richard OConnors VIII Corps comprising three whole armoured divisions - 11th, 7th and Guards - and spearheaded by Major-General Pip Roberts 11th would then rush forward, overwhelm the defending Germans and causing the armoured forces to move forward and break out from the beach areas. To cover the flanks the Canadians would fight their way to Caen, while the British 3rd Infantry and 51st Highland Divisions would cover the left flank,  and move further eastward.
