4TH LIGHT DRAGOONS PERSONAL RECORDS
The following database is a compilation of information, with records drawn from a
wide range of documents held at the British Library and The National Archives at Kew.
The online listing is far from complete and will be added to regularly.
Ultimately it will provide details for men serving in the regiment between the years 1817 - 1867 approximately.
Records for men serving outside these years will be less comprehensive.
I have additional information not yet put online.
If you have a query, or an addition or correction to a man's records, please contact me.
The sources consulted include extracts from the following series:
