North Irish Horse recruits

Nos 2251-2760

These North Irish Horsemen were recruited from late August 1916 to late December 1917. There are many gaps in this sequence because most of the men taken on by the North Irish Horse during this period did not see overseas service, and therefore the records of their service are not available.

Over time I will add further details against each name.

The ranks shown is the highest achieved while serving in the North Irish Horse. Unless otherwise stated, those who served overseas embarked for service with the BEF in France and Belgium.


(*) indicates that the man's service file is available.
