War diaries

6th (Inniskilling) Dragoons Service Squadron

 

These diaries cover the periods in which the squadron served in France as divisional cavalry to the 36th (Ulster) Division - from 5 October 1915 to late June 1916 - and while it was part of the 2nd North Irish Horse Regiment - from late June 1916 to 31 August 1917.  They are sourced from National Archives documents WO 95/2496 and WO 95/874.

For the period covered after the 2nd North Irish Horse Regiment was dismounted and the officers and men absorbed into the 9th (North Irish Horse) Battalion, Royal Irish Fusiliers, see the relevant link in my North Irish Horse site here.
