Sergeant William Munro

 

The background of this North Irish Horseman is not known at present.

William Munro enlisted in the North Irish Horse between 4 and 7 September 1914 (No.1144 – later Corps of Hussars No.71250).

He embarked for France on 18 December 1914 with the first group of reinforcements for A and C Squadrons.

Having returned to the North Irish Horse base depot later in the war, sick, wounded or injured, in January 1918 it is likely that Munro embarked for Egypt with a draft of North Irish Horsemen from the Antrim camp. There he was posted to the 1/1st Nottinghamshire Yeomanry (Sherwood Rangers).

On 26 May 1919 he was transferred to Class Z, Army Reserve.
