Piedmontese WAS Crown Prince Dragoons (or Duke of Savoy's)

Victor Amadeus was born in 1726 so in the WAS he was in his 20's. On his birth he was given the title Duke of Savoy and he used that until he became King in 1773. In the Manley book on Piedmontese Uniforms this unit is referred to as Dragoons of S.A.R or “Son Altesse” “Royal Highness” but it could equally be referred to as the Duke of Savoy's Dragoons.
