The following entries are extracted and transcribed from the 9th Light Horse Regiment War Diary, the originals of which are held by the Australian War Memorial. There are 366 entries on this site. Each day has entries as they occurred from 1914 to 1919. In addition to the 9th Light Horse Regiment War Diary, when appropriate, entries from the 3rd Light Horse Brigade War Diary and other regiments with the Brigade will also appear. Entries from the unit history, Darley, TH, With the Ninth Light Horse in the Great War, Adelaide, Hassell Press, 1924 will also appear from time to time. The aim is to give the broadest context to the story and allow the reader to follow the day to day activities of the regiment. If a relative happened to have served in the regiment during the Great War, then this provides a general framework in which the individual story may be told.

Monday, February 15, 1915

9th Light Horse Regiment Location - HMAT A10 "Karroo", at sea.

9th Light Horse Regiment War Diary -  No entry.


Carew Reynell Diary - I finished mucking out the No. 1 Hold [68 horses] with five parties of 3 to 4 men each and a party to haul up manure and had all mats taken up, cleaned and put back in 45 minutes and Scott paid up.

Each party had two vacant stalls to work on and as they cleaned them shifted the next two horses down and so on.

The record time was made by Private Hahn's party who thoroughly mucked out and swept 18 stalls which entailed shifting 16 horses and finished them in 36 minutes. This will be a ships record for some time I think.

All mucking out was finished in every hold today before breakfast but the Poop Deck was not completed - only one spare stall to about 40 horses.
A fair sea running today and nearly half down with seasickness again. Two pneumonia cases temperature down to normal and doing well. All others well.
