1st Cavalry Division (United Kingdom)

La Première division de cavalerie était une division régulière de l'armée Britannique durant la Première Guerre mondiale où elle se bat sur le front de l'ouest.

Durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, elle était une formation de seconde ligne, formé par les régiments du Yeomanry.

Elle participe en 1941, sous le commandement du général James Joseph Kingstone, à la guerre anglo-irakienne, puis à la campagne de Syrie avant de participer à l'invasion anglo-soviétique de l'Iran.

Par la suite elle est convertie en 10e Division blindée (10th Armoured Division).
