More About This Title The North Irish Horse


The North Irish Horse was created after the Boer War and first saw action in the early days of the Great War, fulfilling divisional or corps cavalry duties, although one of its officers earned the VC with the newly-created Tank Corps. During the Second World War, the Horse was a tank regiment that gained distinction in Tunisia and Italy. Post-war it was reformed as an armoured car TA regiment that survives to this day. Its story is one of courage and dedication in the face of danger and difficulties.
