There are only twenty-three men from the 5th Dragoon Guards who appear on what I refer to as the Princess Mary tin PoW lists. There were undoubtedly more men who were captured and became prisoners of war of the Germans on or before Christmas Day 1914, but these three men - whose names have been catalogued under B.O.2 1/42 (above) B.O.2 1/59 (below) appear on two separate lists.
The men above appear on a list of Dragoons and Lancers NCOs and men which was submitted to Sire Ernest Goodhart by Colonel F J Ryder on the 7th February 1919. The names below appear on a nominal roll of repatriated PoWs of the 1st Life Guards, and Dragoons attached to the 1st Life Guards. The list was submitted to Sir Ernest Goodhart on the 22nd January 1919 by the officer in charge, 1st Life Guards Records.
These lists of names, now housed in the Imperial War Museum, are certainly incomplete but they're also a great starting point. I add to the information I hold by looking at The Times casualty lists and also the Prisoners of War on Findmypast. There are close to 2.7m indexed records in total and over 69,000 First World War PoW records.
Read more about the Princess Mary tin lists here.
I am currently approaching the end of a side research project to index all non-fatal casualties for 1914, and once I've completed this perhaps more 5th Dragoons PoWs will emerge. In the meantime though, here are the three names which appear on B.O.2 1/59
642 Private M Benbow of 42 Bassett Lane, Stapleford, Notts
5332 Private A Meadhurst of 32 Malmesbury Terrace, Canning Town
633 Private G Pratt of 12 Queen Victoria Street, York
Remember, I research soldiers!
