      "The Cherrypickers" - a nickname given to 11th Hussars(Prince Albert's Own).
      They wore crimson overalls (that means trousers (or "pants" in U.S.) a
      distinction awarded by Queen Victoria in 1840 when they became "Prince
      Albert's Own" - before that they were 11th Regiment of (Light) Dragoons.
      The regiment survives much amalagmated as do the trousers with service dress
      (that is smart stuff!)

        The Cherrypickers were the 11th Hussars, Lord Cardigan's regiment at the
        Charge of the Light Brigade.
