Clinton Pearsall: Hello everyone. I am trying to locate any information on my late Grandfather, Frederick James Smith who, according to his WW1 Attestation form, had spent almost 10 years in service to the 3rd Hussars prior to the outbreak of WW1. He enlisted with the 4th South African Mounted Riflemen the 10th June, 1915 with the rank of Rifleman & it is believed he may have been posted to India prior to this. He was medically discharged from the 4th MR on 9th March 1916, only to sign up again with the 3rd South African Infantry Brigade on 28th April 1916.Any information or help in tracking down more details would be greatly appreciated.

Neil Barton: Hello everyone. I am trying to find out about my Granddad's service in WW2 with the 7th QOH. I am applying to the Army Personnel Centre for his full service record however, I wondered if there was any chance anybody had other photos and anecdotes of what the QOH were up to in the war. there is a chance he was involved in the retreat from Burma, we know he was in hospital in Karachi and I have photos from places that look like North Africa...well travelled at the very least.

He was the sole survivor of a tank crew which contained : Donald Merriman (319974), Roger St John Bingham (7948060), Edward Frances Cleere (555001) and John Cornwell (5190551)  The attack on their tank must have occurred after Sept 1944 as we have a photo of their tank and on that date.  My granddad was released from service on 29th August 1946

Any information greatly appreciated and very happy to share anything I have with you if it's relevant.

Ray Turner:  I work with Dav Keeling's son.....sadly Dav recently passed away.....he has emailed me the following.....................​..
Just a quick one about my dad - he was born 14/06/49 and passed away 30/06/12. Served in the QOH regiment for 9yrs and during that time transferred to the Military Police.  He was a jack of all trades and could put his hand to anything. He loved his army days and would come out with all sorts of stories.  He recently got in touch with a few army buddies via Facebook, and he enjoyed talking to them.  He loved fishing, which he did for a numerous of years, but only won one competition, which was recently.  My dad lived life to the full. .....RIP HUSSAR

Simon Hogben (Ex 16/5L):  I am Treasurer and PRO (Press Release Officer for the RBL District of Germany) for the Royal British Legion Branch here in Sennelager Germany.

I took around 290 photographs of the Medal Parade yesterday which have all been uploaded to our Branch Website.

The link is as follows :-                
 http://www.britishlegion-paderborn.com/

The link to the QOH photographs is bottom left in a yellow highlighted box, all photographs are on my Skydrive at high quality, set to public and are therefore downloadable to anybody.

I wondered whether you are interested in placing a link to them on your Web page. Or maybe download some pictures for your site ( be grateful if you could mention they came from RBL Paderborn).

The Battle of Dettingen

Chris Owen: I have been asked to continue with the work on the Battle of Dettingen. General Robin Carnegie and I worked together on and off from the mid 80s. Col Charles Carter has asked me to look at what could be done to resurrect the "project" following General Robin's death. I am delighted to do so. I am not an historian but enjoy the challenge of assembling all the primary and secondary sources. I passed all my original work to general Robin when I came to France. It looks like I am going to get it all back, and more besides !!

One outcome, I hope, will be a comprehensive on line catalogue and bibliography for scholars. It is my dream to produce a "readable" account for all, but don't know whether I am capable of doing that!

So, the aim of this email is to inform you and therfore others, that this little adventure is going on in the background, any snippets found on the battle, personalities etc will be most welcome, though I have all but drained Google! Also, perhaps a Dettingen page eventually on the QOH website would be fantastic.

QOH Bow Ties

Rob Greaves:  After many moves in the Army I somehow lost my very unique QOH bow tie and would like to replace it. I have now found a supplier that will produce them for me, but with a minimum order of 36. Would it be possible to post the information below in order to see if I can drum up interest for that amount?

If any ex-serving member of the Queens Own Hussars is interested in purchasing a unique bespoke made regimental bow tie, please contact me.

The tie is made from silk and is self tie. The cost is £25 Delivery time is 8 weeks once the desired number of 36 is reached.

Ian Coles:  Although I did not always see eye to eye with RVG, I am saddened to hear of his death.  I wonder if any of you have the contact address of his first wife, Jan, so that I can send her a letter of condolences as I am sure she and their two adult children will miss him too.  Last I heard was that she was living in Twyford, Hants but do not have details.

The Regimental Secretary: Spirit of Remembrance is offering a First World War-themed battlefield tour in April, hear how - and see some of the places where - the best trained army the British Empire had ever sent into the field acquitted itself superbly in the face of a numerically vastly superior enemy.

The tour will have a cavalry bias which is unusual if not unique.
