3rd Hussars, 1901-1908
« on: Wednesday 16 August 17 12:00 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find information about activities of the 3rd Hussars for this period.
My grandfather was a groom in the regiment. I do not know any more, uniform, movement, etc.
He served in India at Sialkot and in S Africa 1901 & 1907.
Any info would be welcome.

Early 1900s are always difficult to get detail on as, apart from the Boer War, nothing much happened to disturb the historian's peace.

The QOH museum in Warwick now look after the interests of 3rd Hussars among others.  An email to  them for advice may bear fruit.

Have you been able to find his records?
