4th (Queen's Own) Hussars - other rank PoWs 1914

The following 25 men were all serving with the 4th Hussars when they were captured in 1914. Read more about this data source on my 1914 PoWs page. This data has been transcribed from the Imperial War Museum's collection, specifically item B.O.2 1//153 which is an eight page hand-written letter dated 1919 at York and sent by the officer i/c cavalry records (Hussars).  Many pages are virtually unreadable due to fading.   My full transcription of these men (not reproduced here) also contains the home address of most of the men.

The full transcription is available for sale as part of a Hussars PoW roll - 350+ names in all - for £20. Contact me if you would like to purchase a copy.
