"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

Below is a brief historical outline from RK Peacock, Evolution of Australian Light Horse Regiments 1841-1935,  Unpublished MSS, c.1936, p. 12.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

History:

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

This regiment sprung from the growth in Light Horse Regiments as part of the Kichener Reforms to the Australian militia forces. This Regiment was formed from the Squadrons along the coastal region south of Sydney.  The 28th Illawarra Light Horse was formed by amalgamating the 3rd and 5th Squadrons from the New South Wales Lancers with the New South Wales Mounted Rifles 6th Squadron. The new Regiment was formed on 1 July 1912. In 1921, the 28th Light Horse Regiment was joined to the 6th Light Horse Regiment becoming the 21st Light Horse Regiment. In 1929 it was linked to the 1st Light Horse Regiment to become 1/21st LHR and thus, as a unit ceased to exist.
