Hi,

Could anyone help with some info about 6267 Ernest J Rose and any action the 18th Hussars were engaged in during May 1915.

I was doing some research into why he was discharged on the 15.05.1915 as I cannot find any record of him being wounded and found that he had two MIC's, one for the Hussars and another for the 11th Reserve Cavalry Regiment. I presumed that he was discharged from the Hussars into the Reserve Cavalry, yet on Reserve Cav MIC it states he enlisted 12/01/03 and was discharged 15/05/1915.

Any info on the 18th Hussars during May 1915, the 11th Reserve Cav and why there appears to be two MIC's would be appreciated.

Thanks

Rich

This was the time of 2nd Ypres and the 18th Hussars were part of 1 Cavalry Division. They are listed in the Long Long Trail as taking part in the Battle of Frezenburg from 8-13 May 1915. It is feasible that your subject was incapacitated here and moved out on 15 May.

I have seen two MIcs as well for other subjects. In my case the second MIC only showed a SWB issue.

I shall take a look at the Reserve situation and may return to this subject later.

Best wishes
