North Irish Horse military history

North Irish Horse: "This site explores the experiences of troops of the North Irish Horse during the First World War. It covers the five Squadrons sent to France from 1914 to 1916, as well as the 6th Inniskilling Dragoons (Service Squadron), which became part of the 2nd Regiment North Irish Horse in 1916, the V Corps Cyclist Regiment formed when the 1st Regiment was dismounted in early 1918, and the 9th (North Irish Horse) Battalion, Royal Irish Fusiliers, formed when the 2nd Regiment was dismounted and merged with the 9th Battalion in September 1917.

The site draws on official records, contemporary references and later recollections, together with as many images as I have been able to gather"
