15th Hussars - Other Rank PoWs 1914


These men of the 15th Hussars were all captured 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 Imperial War Museum's collection, specifically item B.O.2 1//161 which is five-page hand-written letter (two lists, with many identical details but some unique information against some men) dated 13th Jan 1919.   My full transcription of these men (not reproduced here) also contains the home address of all 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.


For more information about these so-called 'Princess Mary tin PoWs' see my 1914 PoWs page. The majority of these men will also have records published by the International Committee of the Red Cross. Searching is free; finding your man is another matter entirely.
