"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

8th Battalion Australian Commonwealth Horse, Tasmania

Nominal Roll

 

In 1911, Lieutenant-Colonel P. L. Murray, produced a marvellous Boer War reference detailing all the contingents sent from Australia to South Africa, giving a brief history of the formation and finally, listing all the soldiers who saw service in South Africa with that unit. The book was called, Official Records of the Australian Military Contingents to the War in South Africa. It is now the standard reference and starting place for any person interested in pursuing information about Australian involvement in the Boer War.

Murray, P. L., Official Records of the Australian Military Contingents to the War in South Africa, pp. 385 - 391.

The transcription is below:

 

Trooper W. M Ellis

Died of pneumonia on board the Harlech Castle on November 18. The deceased was particularly a fine man physically. He had been through the whole campaiqn, being one of the troops who proceeded to South Africa in the troopship Kent. He was present at the relief of Kimberley, but escaped the bullets of the Boers only to fall a victim to disease when homeward bound. Ellis was buried at see at 4 o'clock the same afternoon, the ceremony being very impressive. All the troops were lined up on deck, and the chaplain (the Rev. Mr. McBain, of Victoria) read the service.
