"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

History:

Extracted from RK Peacock, Evolution of Australian Light Horse Regiments 1841-1935, p. 4:

This regiment may claim to have sprung from the Victorian Mounted Rifles, a Volunteer organisation formed in 1885. During the year 1891, the Victorian Mounted Rifles. were formed into the 1st and 2nd. Battalions, and it is from this latter battalion that the 4th. Light Horse Regiment owes its origin. In this year the Headquarters of the battalion was at Ballarat and under its command was "G" to "K" Companies with detachments located at Ballarat, Bacchus Marsh, Clunes, Talbot, Maryborough, Elmore, Hamilton and Wharparilla.

At the Federal re-organization of 1903 the Warrnambool, Woodford, Nirranda, Panmure, Terang, Colac, Camperdown, Branxholme, Hamilton, Dunkeld, Byaduk, Casterton, and Narrawong detachments were formed into a mounted unit styled the 11th Australian Light Horse Regiment (Victorian Mounted Rifles).

During 1912 part of the 9th regiment and part of the 11th Australian Light Horse Regiment were formed into a separate unit under the nomenclature of 10th. Light Horse. In 1913: the regiment adopted a territorial title and was then known as the 20th (Corangamite) Light Horse. As this it remained until 1918 when it became the 4th (Corangamite) Light Horse.

This section explores the evolution of the Regiment from its first origins as a Commonwealth formation. Each year maps the movement of men and often locations of the various Squadrons and Troops. To get the flavour of the Regiment, it is best to begin the journey at 1903 and follow though each year till the end.

History:

Extracted from  RK Peacock, Evolution of Australian Light Horse Regiments 1841-1935, p. 8.

This regiment sprung from the Victorian Mounted Rifles a volunteer unit raised i 1885. Detachments existed at Euroa, Longwood, Violet Town, Benalla, Thoona, Wangaratta, Rutherglen and Beechworth and formed part of the 1st Battalion Victorian Mounted Rifles until 1901. During the Federal organisation of 1903, these detachments were formed into a separate unit style 8th Australian Light Horse Regiment (Victorian Mounted Rifles). The regiment continued under this title until 1912 when four squadrons of the 8th were designated the 16th Light Horse (Victorian Mounted Rifles). In the following year, 1913, it became the 16th (Indi) Light Horse, reverting to the 8th (Indi) Light Horse in 1918, this was later altered to 8th Light Horse Regiment (Indi Light Horse).
