The Great War

6th Inniskilling Dragoons

The 6th (Inniskilling) Dragoons was a Cavalry Regiment that would have had an MG Section as part of its Regimental Headquarters. These weapons would have been brigaded when the Machine Gun Corps was formed in 1915. The guns, and crews, would have been formed into a Machine Gun Squadron.


Inter-war Period

In 1922, the Machine Gun Corps was disbanded and the guns returned to the Cavalry Regiment as a Machine Gun Platoon.

In April 1922, the 5th Dragoon Guards (two squadrons) was amalgamated with The Inniskillings (1 squadron) to form 5th/6th Dragoons.
