Various Indian cavalry divisions were involved in the war and played a valuable part in many engagements.
“Captain G.C.G. Blunt, eldest son of Mr Gerald Blunt, of Springfield Park [Horsham], who has several times been specifically employed by the War Office in connection with Mechanical Transport, has been summoned home from Malta to command a supply column for an Indian Cavalry Division at the front.
“Capt Blunt is now at Woolwich raising and organising his unit which consists of 580 N.C.O.’s and men, and 112 motor lorries. The men’s pay is 42s a week and all found.”
