Like most cavalry regiments, the 16th Lancers deployed to South Africa in 1899 for service in the Boer War (1899–1902). They eventually returned to England in 1904. After serving in the First World War, the regiment was amalgamated with the 5th Royal Irish Lancers to form the 16th/5th The Queen's Royal Lancers.
