Subject: 14th HUSSARS IN BANGALORE
Hello India List!
Hope your holiday was a happy one. I am seeking information on my
paternal grandfather and his family. Company Sergeant Major George
Edward Hayward served in the British Army from 1901-1922, and returned
to service in 1940. Then 54, he lied about his age, and was sent to
France, where he won a mention in despatches for action at Dunkirk.
Most of his career was with the 14th Hussars, whom I believe were
garrisoned in Bangalore. His service extract indicates that he was in
India from Sept 1906 to Nov 1915, Mesopotamia from Nov 1915 to Mar
1916, India from Mar 1916 Jan 1917, and attached to the Mespotamia
Expeditionary Force from Jan 1917 to Mar 1919. His family accompanied
him in India, and several of my father's siblings were born in India.
Are there any military buffs out there who know anything about the
14th Hussars and their families in India?
Ron Hayward, (Gunnery Sergeant USMC)
