Below is a complete list of every regular British cavalry regiment which served in the First World War. If you click on the regiment’s title you will be taken to a new page which will give you the following information:
- Information to help you research a soldier who served in the regiment
- The regiment’s lineage
- Where the regiment was stationed in August 1914
- An overview of its services during the First World War
- A description of its war diaries including catalogue reference at the National Archives, London
- Further sources of information
- Whether a regimental history exists
- Extracts from the regiment’s war diary
I have also written an article describing the Structure of a British Cavalry Regiment in 1914.
British Cavalry Regiments of the First World War
This is a work in progress and I will be continually updating the contents. Some Regiments have been completed while others only have a very basic overview.
