16th Lancers - PoWs 1914


This is an edited roll of the handful of men serving with the 16th Lancers, who were captured by the enemy and became Prisoners of War on or before the 25th December 1914. Read more about this data source on my 1914 PoWs page.

This data has been transcribed from the following source at the Imperial War Museum:

1. B.O.2 1/236. This is a three-page hand-written document  listing 16th Lancers who were captured on or before 25th December 1914.  Letter sent 23/12/1918 by 16th (The Queen's) Lancers Prisoners of War Fund

2. B.O.2 1/243. This is a single-page typed document listing four men of the 16th Lancers who were captured on or before 25th December 1914. No date or sender.

My full transcription of this 16th Lancers collection (not reproduced here) also contains the following information against some or all of the names:

Date of capture
Home address
Next of kin
Next of kin's address
Notes


The full transcription is available for sale as part of a larger Lancers' PoW roll - download or CD - for £10. Contact me if you would like to purchase a copy.
