During June of 1921 the Cheshire Regiment were active almost daily, carrying out searches around the county to find I.R.A. members.  These searches were carried out based on intelligence from the R.I.C..  This information was often from informers or from orders received by telegram from Headquarters.  The attached document lists some of those searches from 8th June to 3rd July 1921.
