There are only twenty men from the 5th Dragoon Guards who appear on what I refer to as the Princess Mary tin PoW lists. These men above appear on a list of Dragoons and Lancers NCOs and men which was submitted to Sir Ernest Goodhart by Colonel F J Ryder on the 7th February 1919. The names below appear on a  nominal roll of repatriated PoWs of the 1st Life Guards, and Dragoons attached to the 1st Life Guards. The list was submitted to Sir Ernest Goodhart on the 22nd January 1919 by the officer in charge, 1st Life Guards Records.  

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