Although I don't personally have any association with the 14th/20th King's Hussars I've been given permission to post comments/questions on this forum.
If anyone has any information about 14th/20th King's Hussars or members of the Lancashire's Regiment with Surrey connections who fought in the First World War we would like to hear from you.
I work for Surrey Heritage, part of Surrey County Council and based at the county archive. We're running a First World War project to bring together the stories of people connected with the county who were affected by or affected the war: service personnel and civilians, casualties and survivors. Here's a link to the project website http://www.surreyinthegreatwar.org.uk
. We're also currently hosting the Surrey Infantry Museum team after the disastrous fire at Clandon.
In addition we run the county Historic Environment Record (HER). This is used mostly to record archaeological finds but is increasingly being used to record more modern buildings and features that are of significance. The HER is consulted when a planning application is being considered. As part of the FWW project we're recording war memorials in the county as too many have been lost already through redevelopment.
There's some overlap with the IWM's Lives of the First World War and War Memorials Archive but we're cross referencing to their databases to avoid too much overlap and our interest is to personalise the people who lived through the FWW by getting their pictures and (family) stories on-line. We are proactively getting volunteers to research people and places during the FWW. We're making connections between memorials so a browser can see where someone is mentioned on more than one memorial and also making connections between Stories where there are links between the people involved.
So far in our database we have some information about at least four members of the 14th/20th Kings Hussars with Surrey/FWW connections: George A Butters, Henry James Deccan Leigh, William James Burt and Harold Martin Soames. I've seen the 2012 thread on this forum about George A Butters (it's how I found the forum) and have pinged a message off to Rosemary directly.
If anyone has information or images (portraits, war memorials, gravestones etc) please contact me:
