Sergeant William Munro


The background of this North Irish Horseman is not known at present.

William Munro enlisted in the North Irish Horse between 4 and 7 September 1914 (No.1144 – later Corps of Hussars No.71250).

He embarked for France on 18 December 1914 with the first group of reinforcements for A and C Squadrons, returning to the North Irish Horse base depot at Antrim at some point later in the war, probably sick, wounded or injured.

In January 1918 Munro embarked for Egypt with a draft of North Irish Horsemen from the Antrim depot. There he was attached to the 1/1st Nottinghamshire Yeomanry (Sherwood Rangers), serving with that regiment in the Palestine campaign.

On 26 May 1919 he was transferred to Class Z, Army Reserve.
