8th (Kings Royal Irish) Hussars

Roll of Honour 1944-1945

The information contained in this Roll of Honour has been taken from the Regimental History "Men of Valour: the third volume of the history of the VIII King's Royal Irish Hussars, 1927-1958"; by Olivia Fitzroy; published by Sir Geoffrey V Bates; in 1961. Dates of death have been taken from The Commonwealth War Graves Commission online Roll of Honour at http://www.cwgc.org, with occasional supplements i.e. Troop and Squadron gleaned from other sources. I have discovered that at least in my Uncle, George William Attwood's case, the reported and official date of death is incorrect. He is reported to have been KIA on 13th June1944 (official casualty letter is shown to the left) and there would appear to a significant body of evidence which suggests that he may have died on 14th June 1944. This may be true of other casualties and given the confusing circumstances and the nature of The Regiments role, this may not be surprising. 

Click on the name  for a photograph (if I have one) I would be grateful for any other information about the listed casualties.
