"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

South African (Second Boer) War: 1899-1902, Embarkation Roll: RAC to REY
Topic: BW - Boer War

South African (Second Boer) War, 1899-1902

Australian Participation - Full Index

Embarkation Roll: RAC to REY

 

 

The following is an alphabetical roll of all Australians known members of the many military formations which embarked overseas during the South African (Second Boer) War, 1899-1902.

Each man is detailed on this reference list with the following information:

Service Number;

Rank on Embarkation;

First Names;

Family Name;

If applicable, any false name employed; and,

Service unit.

 

Notes

Note 1: All soldiers’ names are linked to the specific unit and date when embarkation occurred.

Note 2: There are duplications of some names in the following list. The reason for this is that the soldier embarked on more than one occasion. This was the simplest way of resolving the problem of multiple entries for a single individual.

Embarkation Roll: REY to ROB

 

 

The following is an alphabetical roll of all Australians known members of the many military formations which embarked overseas during the South African (Second Boer) War, 1899-1902.

Each man is detailed on this reference list with the following information:

Service Number;

Rank on Embarkation;

First Names;

Family Name;

If applicable, any false name employed; and,

Service unit.

 

Notes

Note 1: All soldiers’ names are linked to the specific unit and date when embarkation occurred.

Note 2: There are duplications of some names in the following list. The reason for this is that the soldier embarked on more than one occasion. This was the simplest way of resolving the problem of multiple entries for a single individual.

It is now the standard reference and starting place for any person interested in pursuing information about Australian involvement in the Boer War.

6th.- Major-General Hutton inspected the regiment and said:-

"Colonel Hoad, Officers, Non-commissioned Officers, and Men of the Australian Regiment, I wish to explain to yon the circumstances which have led up to an alteration now to be made in the constitution of the various Contingents from the Australian Colonies. As you are no doubt aware the Australian Regiment was formed in the first instance with a view of simplifying the administrative work of the units from Australia. This object, I may tell you, has been fully achieved, and the organisation has been a complete success. I may further express to you my high appreciation, not only of the administrative work, but of that done in the field by the Regiment since its formation. That work rebounds to the credit of Colonel Hoad and of every officer and man in the Regiment. As later Contingents have arrived, it has been thought desirable that in future troops from individual Colonies should, as far as possible, work together. The advantages of this arrangement are, no doubt, obvious. While small units engaged in a large campaign like this are unquestionably doing good work - most admirable work - they can scarcely, while acting separately, make their work sufficiently pronounced and distinctive of the several Colonies they come from. By becoming units in a larger sense they may be able to play a much more important part in operations in the field.

"I am sure that every officer and man present desires to add to the honour of the Colony from which he comes. The formation of a Colonial Division, comprising, as it will do, two brigades of about 6,000 men each, should materially assist you in accomplishing that object.

“I am very pleased indeed to renew my acquaintanceship with my old friend, Colonel Hoad, and also with Australian troops generally. Some of your faces are well known to me, and recall pleasant recollections of the time I spent in Australia. I feel sure that the disposition of troops from the several Colonies which has been decided upon will considerably increase your volume of usefulness.

“I have appointed Colonel Hoad my A.A.G., and he will represent me here in camp."


6th.- Colonel Hoad, in bidding good-bye to the Regiment, said:-

"Officers and men of the Australian Regiment, as this is the last parade on which you appear as a regiment, I desire to express to you my appreciation of the loyal support and assistance I have received from you during the period of my command. The work done by the Regiment speaks for itself. I may tell you that General Clements yesterday informed me that he was going to report to Lord Roberts on the admirable character of that work performed by you in the field. The organization of this regiment at Enslin on a new basis as a mounted infantry corps, needless to say, involved a great deal of work. I desire to express my personal indebtedness to Captain Lascelles who, as you know, wrought like a Trojan as our adjutant, at a period when there was very much to do. In saying good-bye to you as a regiment, I am pleased to know I am not to be disassociated from you, and can only express the hope that every officer and man may be able to look back to the time we have spent together, and think of me not so much as a commanding officer, but as a friend and comrade, as one who has slept beside him on the South African veldt. I may tell you that the alteration now to be made, and which the General has described to you, is one about which I was consulted, and in which I have at every stage moat heartily concurred, and I feel that it will be a great advantage to the troops from Australia. I wish you all good-bye and good luck, and I pray that if God wills you may all be spared to return to your wives, families, and dear ones in Australia."


8th.- The Australian Regiment with several other corps, was absorbed in the 1st Mounted Infantry Brigade, formed under the command of Major-General Hutton, C.B., A.D.C.

The regiment served under the following General Officers:-

Operations in Cape Colony, South of Orange River, including actions round Colesberg, operations in the Orange Free State, and the advance to Bloemfontein.

Extract from Lines of Communication Orders, dated lot August, 1900 (Cape Town):

“Command-

Colonel J. C. Hoad, Australian Regiment, commanded the, Australian Regiment from 27th November, 1899, to 7th April, 1900, inclusive. C.R., No. A8365 - 107A."


After the Australian Regiment had been broken up, the 1st Victorians were placed under Colonel Price, who had the 2nd Victorians, and they formed part of the 4th Mounted Infantry Corps, under Colonel Henry (vide 2nd Contingent). They took part in all the operations with the main line of advance from Bloemfontein to Komati Poort, being present at Brandfort, Klip River, Zand River, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Diamond Hill, Belfast, and many other fights. During the fighting east of Karee on 1st May, several men whose horses had been killed were carried out by their comrades. Colonel Price and Captain Staughton each carried one out of fire during the retirement.

On 5th November, the Contingent embarked at Cape Town in the Harlech Castle, and arrived at Melbourne on 4th December, having called at Albany and Adelaide en route.

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.
