My Father, William Charles Welch was part of this troop and when War broke out he was transfered to the 97 (The Kent Yeomanry) Field Regiment, Royal Artillery. I know he was in Iraq, because I have photo’s of him in Basra. He died in an Italian Prisoner of War Camp in Sept 1942 and is buried in Benghzi War Cemetary.
This photo was taken in 1939 Bedford Road, Hitchin
