    The Bearskin used by the Foot Guard Regiments of the Household Division should not be confused with the Busby, which is a much smaller fur cap worn by The Royal Horse Artillery and Hussar Regiments in full dress.

    Therefore the use of the word Busbies in this instance is completely erroneous.
