Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry (The 2/4th Battalion)

Research and Resources around the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry during WWI

The Rothschilds as Recruiters for Buckinghamshire in the First World War

The Rothschilds as Recruiters for Buckinghamshire in the First World War by Harold Pollins is a very well researched article on Jewish soldiers recruited into the Buckinghamshire regiments. The following sentence caught my attention:

“Furthermore, with the help of the CD-Rom of Soldiers Died in the Great War I was able to establish that of the deaths in another OBLI bn, 2/4, as many as 24 had enlisted at New Court of whom 22 had previously been in the Royal Bucks Hussars.”

I’m interested in any further research around this transfer of men from the Royal Buckinghamshire Hussars in the 2/4th OBLI.
