I found some more of my old School of Infantry rough notes which includes a lot of detail on the use of the Grey’s Scouts. Also the ORBAT is in the notes.

I from this you will be able to come up with new scenarios. One thing you must remember is that the Grey’s were mounted Infantry and would dismount to skirmish or assault an enemy. position. They would not charge mounted at buildings or dug in positions or objectives. The only time this would happen is during an ambush situation.

The reaction to ambush drill for the Grey’s Scouts was to charge the Terr position. I can only say it is quite an aw inspiring sight. We as officer cadets were put behind trees and warned not to come from behind them. The Grey’s charged through us and it was suitably frightening. We were warned that the horses would just run us down, if we stepped out, thus killing us.

Way back when, I did notice that Grey’s Scouts would escort convoys but they would travel in a horse carrier with a MAP TCV such as a Crocodile and would be released once there was a contact. They could then follow up or even cut the ambush group off. I could not envisage horses keeping up with a convoy for long as the convoys traveled at a fare speed.

The new Grey’s Scouts photos are by Andy Collier. Very detailed photos indeed..
