7th Princess Royal Dragoon Guards
« on: Tuesday 27 November 18 16:18 GMT (UK) »
At his wedding on 2 January 1918, in Kirriemuir, William Willis Mann described himself as a "Trooper in the 7th Princess Royal Dragoon Guards presently stationed at Woolton, Hampshire"
I am looking for any  further information on his service such as Regimental number, date of joining the military etc.

Many Thanks,

Geoff
