The 6th Inniskilling Dragoons 1815-1890


Where the Dragoons served, extracted from 'In Search of the "Forlorn Hope": a comprehensive guide to locating British regiments and their records (1640-WW1)' by John M. Kitzmiller, II.

Note: Even when the Regiment was fighting abroad, there was always a depot unit "at home" (i.e., UK), usually engaged in recruiting and domestic or civil duties. Fitzmiller does not distinguish between the front line and depot troops.
