6th Dragoon Guards - Other Rank PoWs 1914

The 6th Dragoon Guards men who appear in the list below were all captured and became prisoners of war of the Germans on or before Christmas Day 1914

The men have been catlaogued under B.O.2 1/161 at the Imperial War Museum which is a five-page hand-written letter (two lists, with many identical details but some unique information against some men) dated 13th Jan 1919. Other details not published here include the men's home addresses.

These lists of names, now housed in the Imperial War Museum, are certainly incomplete but they're also a great starting point.  I am currently adding 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

... and remember, I research soldiers!
