An Army regiment that unsucessfully sought to trade in its horses for dragons. Its last commmander, indeed its last surviving oficer, is Colonel Charles Augustus Makepeace, author of the stirring military memoir Twenty-four Years Without Eyebrows.

Given the unremarkable size of the average swamp dragon, the dragons bred to be large enough to ride must have been some sight... it is interesting that Lady Sybil Ramkin has never mentioned them, especially when she is known to have said the usual swamp dragon only gets to be two foot eight at the shoulder.

Colonel Makepeace has retired to breed dragons..
