North Irish Horsemen at Gallipoli

On 12 July 1915 twenty-three North Irish Horsemen from F Squadron volunteered for service as Military Mounted Police with the 54th (East Anglian) Division, which was under orders to join the Mediterranean Expeditionary Force. They sailed from Devonport on HMT Manitou on 29 July 1915, joining the landing at Suvla Bay, Gallipoli, between 10 and 16 August.

By the end of the year the campaign at Gallipoli was abandoned, the men of the North Irish Horse embarking for Alexandria, Egypt, in December. A number of them remained there for the duration of the war, serving in various elements of the Egypt and Palestine campaigns.
