The SIIY & SIH
South Irish Horse South of Ireland Imperial Yeomanry
My involvement with the South Irish Horse began with a family photograph, or to be more specific three photographs. Thumbnails of them are shown below.
 
Frank Vaugh SIH Curragh Camp Mounted SIH member France 1914-18   The South Irish Horse existed for a mere 20 years. Raised as The South of Ireland Imperial Yeomanry in Jan 1902 and disbanded in July 1922 along with five other famous Irish Regiments
       The Royal Irish Regiment,
       The Connaught Rangers,
       The Leinster Regiment,
       The Royal Munster Fusiliers &
       The Royal Dublin Fusiliers.
The roots of the Irish Horse can be traced to the Boer War with the 61st (South Irish) Company, 17th Battalion, Imperial Yeomanry.

  I have many pieces of information that I want to share with interested parties, hence the web site. For the future, I and my brother Hugh, see the picture on the right, are working on a biographical history of the men who had a connection with the South of Ireland Imperial Yeomanry or the South Irish Horse. So whether you are a relative, a collector, a military enthusiast or a casual observer please get in touch with your observations or questions, because we are keen to share experiences and information.
