    Curtis,

    I sent you links to the complete war diaries. These entail the best information on the regiment. Any other sources usually are based on the war diaries. Did you find any reference to your grandfather there?

    Hi, just reviewing this thread. My research and reading in the 6CAR/1st Hussars WD show that when a soldier was taken on strength (TOS), not necessarily indicated which squadron they went to. That said, other units are well known for meticulous WD’s.
