Hi. I can't help with your particular query, but you might like to see what the Imperial War Museum has on the East Riding Yeomanry: http://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/searc ... er_page=10

Hi..........Thanks for that link there are some good recordings on there. I have my grandads records but more detailed information is hard to get as for a lot of vets he didnt talk about it. Think I could find out more indepth details if I was to find out what squadron he was, a lot more accurate info would come to light. Thanks for the interest

Bruce
