George Michael Holt was part of the Warwickshire Yeomanry. The British yeomanry during the First World War were part of the British Army reserve Territorial Force. Initially in 1914 there were fifty-seven regiments and fourteen mounted brigades. Soon after the declaration of war second and third line regiments were formed. The third line regiments however were soon absorbed into the Cavalry Reserve Regiments, to supply replacements for the cavalry and yeomanry. George was shot through the mouth and was later cared for at Birmingham Hospital.

Grandfather of Richard Holt.
