Not British. As far as I know no British cavalry ever wore yellow metal cuirasses. Given the Horse motif and "Nec Aspera Terrent" motto, my guess is Hannoverian Garde du Corps circa 1816 onwards.

Hard to tell. I'm not schooled on Hanover Army, and I'm not expert in British Military for the years where this could have come into play. It is definitely the Hanover Horse and the motto of the family.
