Marigold1 Posted 6 August , 2014 Share Posted 6 August , 2014 Here's a bit of a puzzle. It relates to Private Alfred Hall Taylor (No: 5305) According to the Loughborough Roll of Honour he was in the 1st (King's) Dragoon Guards and was killed in action in Flanders on 30 October 1914. The Long, Long Trail provides the information, however, that the Ist (King's) Dragoon Guards was in Lucknow, India, in August 1914 and did not arrive in France until 7 November 1914. The database Died in the Great War (via Ancestry) gives the information that Alfred Hall Taylor was 'Household Cavalry. Cavalry of the Line. Bn: Corps of Dragoons, !st King's Dragoon Guards.. Am wondering if Taylor was with the 1st Royal Dragoons, rather than 1st King's Dragoon Guards, as the 1st Royal Dragoons arrived in Belgium on 8 October 1914. Would be very grateful for comments on this. Marigold: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
