7th (Princess Royal's) Dragoon Guards - PoW Other Ranks 1914


Some of the Imperial War Museum regimental rolls of other ranks captured by the Germans on or before 25th December 1914 are very thin indeed, and the 7th Dragoon Guards' roll falls into this category. There are just five men listed on two sources: B.O. 2 1/39 and B.O. 2 1/52. 

The information below records the men's names and regimental numbers, date of capture and home address.

6671 Corporal P F Cosgrave, captured 21st December 1914; 62 Pimlico, Dublin 
6857 Private C Lewis, captured 24th August 1914; 10 Dacre Street, Old Town, Eastbourne 
6924 Sergeant G W Naylor; captured 21st December 1914; 132 Russel Street, Hills Road, Cambridge 
6576 Private John Plain, 30th October 1914; 18 Cambridge Street, Brighton, Sussex
