Edward Byam, who was an active soldier during the previous incarnation of the 18th Hussars in the Napoleonic Wars. The regiment spent the next few years training at various locations around England and being used in ceremonial and civil capacities, such public parades, officers' balls, and royal escorts. A few interesting events occurred during this time. These included the murder of one soldier by another over a saddle and multiple Hussars being brought to court, including the case of one captain with a penchant for buying stolen furniture. It was announced in 1864 that the 18th Hussars would be sent to India. The regiment proceeded to the port at Gravesend, where the left wing boarded the Winchester and the right wing boarded the Clarence. The right wing, under Lieut. Col. Richard Knox, set sail for India.
