"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

Where Australians Fought, Battles, 1899 - 1920, Outline
Topic: Battles

Where Australians Fought

Battles, 1899 - 1920

Outline

 

Over the two decades covered by this site, Australian forces participated in 118 recorded and designated battles fought over many continents and in different places. While this list is incomplete the number of further additions will be few. These battles illustrate all aspects of the Australian character. 

The role of the Light Horse in these battles during this period needs to be placed in that context, ensuring that it is not overstated but also not understated too.

The compiled list is in two parts, the first being a chronological list in strict date order while the second is in alphabetical order. The aim is to allow a ready reference to a specific battle by date or name.
