Dear David:

If you are right about the regiment, he did not take part in the war. It was the 5th Dragoon Guards, not the 5th Dragoons that were in the Crimea. Below is info on the 5th Dragoons from a website on the internet:

1689 Owen Wynne's, or Ross's Regiment of Dragoons
1690 5th Dragoons
1704 Royal Dragoons of Ireland
1751 5th Regiment of Dragoons
1756 5th (or Royal Irish) Regiment of Dragoons
1799 disbanded
1858 Reformed as 5th (or Royal Irish) Regiment of Dragoons
resumed old number, 5th (or Royal Irish) Regiment of Dragoons (Lancers)
1861 5th (or Royal Irish) Lancers, 5th (Royal Irish) Lancers
1921 5th Royal Irish Lancers
1921 (July) disbanded
1922 (April) Amalgamated with 16th The Queen's Lancers, to form 16th/5th Lancers

Cheers,

Lawrence W. Crider
