5th Irish Lancers in Risalpur


Recommended Posts

looking for any information with regards to 5th Irish Lancers in India immediately after the Great War of 1914-1918.  My great uncle served with this regiment there and was in Risalpur India 1920 (now part of Pakistan)

The Regiment moved to Risalpur in November 1919 an advance party of 3 Officers and 2 Sergeants having sailed from Liverpool on SS Herefordshire on 21 Sept. 1919.  They were still there at the time of disbandment in July 1921.


A single Squadron was re-raised the following year to merge with the 16th Queen's Lancers to form the 16th/5th Lancers.
