History:

Below is a brief historical outline from RK Peacock, Evolution of Australian Light Horse Regiments 1841-1935,  Unpublished MSS, c.1936, p. 6. 

This regiment owes its origin to the formation in 1888 of a Corps of Permanent Mounted Infantry in NSW. In the following year the Upper Clarence River Light Horse and this unit, together with the Bega Battery of Artillery, the Reserve Companies of Infantry at Queanbeyan, Picton, Campbelltown and Inverell, were styled the New South Wales Cavalry Regiment, this continued until 1850 when the permanent corps was disbanded.

By 1893 the NSW Cavalry Regiment had become the New South Wales Mounted Rifles and held this title until the year 1903. At the Federal reorganisation in this year No. 1 Squadron from Molong, No. 2 Squadron from Picton and Camden, and No. 3 Squadron from Forbes, together with "C" Squadron of the 1st Australian Horse from Mudgee and Rylston, and "G" Company and "J" Company of the 3rd N.S.W. Infantry from Wellington and Forbes respectively were amalgamated and became the 2nd Australian Light Horse Regiment (New South Wales Mounted Rifles). In addition there was the Canterbury 1/2 Squadron, raised in 1900, which became No. 6 Squadron attached to the 2nd A.L.H. Regitment.

In the same re-organisation No. 4 Squadron from Tenterfield and Glenn Innes became part of the 5th A.L.H. Regiment (15th L.H.).

In the re-organisation of 1912 the regiment was transferred to the Queensland command as the 4th Light Horse (New South Wales Northern Rivers Lancers).

Below is a brief historical outline from RK Peacock, Evolution of Australian Light Horse Regiments 1841-1935,  Unpublished MSS, c.1936, p. 12. 

The Regiment originally sprang from the 6th Australian Light Horse Regiment (Australian Horse) which was brought into existence in 1903. In 1907 the 6th Australian Light Horse Regiment became known as the 6th Australian Light Horse Regiment (New England Light Horse), a title it carried until 1912 when it was known as the 5th Australian Light Horse Regiment (New England Light Horse). It carried this title until the divisional organisation of 1921 when it became designated as the 12th Australian Light Horse Regiment (New England Light Horse). 

 

New England Light Horse

Originally known as The Australian Horse, after the split of the regiment in 1903, the northern regiment was still the Australian Horse, and then after 1907, New England Light Horse.
