My apologies if these memorial plaques have been covered before on the forum. They are located at Christ Church Cathedral, St Aldates,Oxford, Oxfordshire. They are dedicated to the Imperial Yeomanry regiments raised in Oxford in1900.
I have added some additional information regarding the casualties for reference.
