"At a mile distant their thousand hooves were stuttering thunder, coming at a rate that frightened a man - they were an awe inspiring sight, galloping through the red haze - knee to knee and horse to horse - the dying sun glinting on bayonet points..." Trooper Ion Idriess

The Australian Light Horse Studies Centre aims to present an accurate history as chroniclers of early Australian military developments from 1899 to 1920.

The Australian Light Horse Studies Centre site holds over 12,000 entries and is growing daily.

Brigade Scout Roll
Topic: AIF - DMC - Scouts

Brigade Scouts 

 Roll of Known Scouts in the Light Horse

 

The most well known Brigade Scouts were the 3rd LH Brigade Scouts who were even granted their own particular scout badge which could be worn on their uniform. Harry Bostock then went onto immortalise them in his book "The Long Ride", although, as has been pointed out before and needs reiteration, this book can be a tad bit imaginary when it comes to telling history so if referring to the book, it is wise to check the facts before accepting them from Bostock. Apart from the above caveat, Bostock has done more than anyone to bring their adventures to light.

The following link takes you to a pic of the 3rd LHB Scouts while they were resting in the hills around Tripoli after the war ended. This pic was taken sometime in December 1918 - perhaps a last hurrah laid on for them by Wilson to celebrate and thank them for their work.

Needless to say, if anyone can recognise a face, let us know so that we can begin to identify each man in this group.

The problem with putting together lists like this lies within the fact that rarely do the service records highlight the recruitment of a scout. Also Routine Orders do not list the names of scouts except on the rare occasion. Compiling these lists mainly occurs through reading diaries and other personal sources. No one source will give up this information. the sources are diverse and striking a name is just one of those lucky gems that occasionally comes along to reward the researcher.
