"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

New South Wales Infantry Contingent, Recruitment of the Infantry Contingent
Topic: BW - NSW - NSW Inf
 

NSW Inf

New South Wales Infantry Contingent

Recruitment of the Infantry Contingent

 

Men from the 6th (Australian Rifles) Infantry Regiment

(Town & Country Journal, 4 November 1899, p. 24.)

 

When it was announced that New South Wales was to send a contingent of infantry to South Africa, the seven Infantry Regiments were asked to supply a total of a hundred fully trained men. Since the number of recruits required was exceedingly small and the number of men wishing to apply was in the range of 20 to one available position, the officials were in the enviable position of sending the best men that was possible at the time. Competition was so fierce that acceptance sometimes was finally judged upon the number of parades a person attended, all things being equal.

The following list gives an idea as to the spread of men from different regiments. This list consists of the Nominal Roll as it was drafted on 2 November 1899 prior to embarkation. It details the originating Regiment and rank of each individual member of the Contingent and then places it with the new Service Number and rank obtained for service in the Contingent.
