The North Irish Horse
This site traces the experiences of the men of the North Irish Horse during the First World War. It includes the five North Irish Horse squadrons sent to France from 1914 to 1916, the 6th Inniskilling Dragoons (Service Squadron) which joined the North Irish Horse in 1916, the V Corps (North Irish Horse) Cyclist Regiment and the 9th (North Irish Horse) Battalion, Royal Irish Fusiliers. It draws on official records, contemporary references, recollections, and a large collection of photographic images provided by many people from across the world. The site is dedicated to my Grandfather, Francis Joseph MacMahon, whose story inspired my research and is told in these pages.
