The following men were all serving with the 5th (Princess Charlotte of Wales's) Dragoon Guards when they became prisoners of war of the Germans on or before Christmas Day 1914. There are only 20 names on this list. Read more about this Prisoner of War data source on my 1914 PoWs page.
This data has been transcribed from two separate lists (B.O.2 1/42 and B.O.2 1/50 inclusive) which are now housed at the Imperial War Museum.
This is an edited list, giving number, rank and name only. The full transcription also includes date of capture and home address or next of kin address for most men.
