"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

9th LHR AIF War Diary, 21 May
Topic: AIF - 3B - 9 LHR

9th LHR, AIF

9th Light Horse Regiment

War Diary, 21 May

Pro Gloria et Honore - For Glory and Honour

Regimental March -  Marching Through Georgia

 

 

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.

9th Light Horse Regiment Location - Lemnos then Anzac Cove
9th Light Horse Regiment War Diary - 1000 Headquarters, A and “B” Squadrons embarked in destroyer Scourge and left for Kaba Tepe. “C” Squadron embarked on Scorpion and followed. Machine Guns remained on board the transport.
1600 Transhipped from destroyers on to boats about 300 yards from the shore. Landing then carried out under shrapnel fire - no casualties. Regiment bivouacked in gully.
(Note: This reference to the 9th LHR MG is somewhat confusing when the entry of the 9th May outlines that the machine gunners had embarked with the 3rd LH bde that day. Just what or who these machine gunners were is a bit of a mystery. It is unlikely that the 9th gunners would have been evacuated to Mundros before this date and maybe these machine gunners referred to were reinforcements.)

Infantry parading at Pontville
Topic: Gen - St - Tas
I came across this pic of a group of infantry parading at Pontville Camp. This picture appeared in the Tasmanian Mail, 10 September 1914, p. 18.

There are quite a few things very noticable.

There is a lack of uniformity in the ranks. No "great coats off" or "on" here. It is almost a "come as you are" affair. Hats are either pinned or unpinned. In one instance, the fellow in the second row is wearing a "Gor Blimey" cap with a non regulation shirt without collar attached. The uniforms appear to be that of the militia rather than the later distinctive AIF uniforms.

"Fall in", 93rd Derwent Infantry Regiment
Topic: Gen - St - Tas
While looking through the Tasmanian Mail, in the illustration section of the newspaper, I found this shot of a Bugler Sergeant with full panoply about to blow "Fall in" to all Taswegian men.

Here is the pic from the Tasmanian Mail, 20 August 1914, p 17:

Apart from a stirring pic, the two things that caught my eye. The first was the badge on the collar, a lion, which is the emblem of Tasmania. The shoulder title has the name "Derwent" which refers to the 93rd Derwent Infantry Regiment, Militia, one of three Tasmanian Militia Infantry Regiments.  

93rd Derwent Infantry Regiment's Headquarters was located in Hobart with the companies located in these specific areas:

"A" and "B" Companies - Hobart
"C" Company - Geeveston and Franklin
"D" Company - Glenochy
"E" Company - New Norfolk and Macquarie Plains
"F" Company - Lovett and Huonville

After the war the 93rd Derwent Infantry Regiment was renamed the 40th Derwent Infantry Regiment and later the 40th Battalion and 12/40 Battalion.

The other two Tasmanian regiments were:

  • 91st Tasmanian Infantry Regiment
  • 92nd Launceston Infantry Regiment

The 93rd Derwent Infantry Regiment  was mobilised at the outbreak of war and went into camp at Pontville. Their task was to secure the Hobart area from potential German threats.

Changing the Guard - 86th Infantry Regiment
Topic: Gen - St - WA

Here is a series of pix taken by Mr EL Mitchel and published in the Western Mail, 14 August 1914, p. 27. 

The first pic shows a group of serious young men from the 86th  Infantry Regiment beginning their guard duty shift. They all look so earnest and keen to do the right thing without fail. It looks like their first chance to tackle the "Hun" with their best and cleanest uniforms on.

A couple comments.

The uniforms look like Militia and I strongly suspect the guards in this pic are from the 86th Infantry Regiment which was mobilised in the Fremantle area with the express purpose to ward off the expected German invasion from the secret German fleet lurking off the coast of Western Australia just waiting for an opportunity to pounce. This was the big scare that focused the minds of West Australians at the commencement of the war. As the days dragged onto weeks, months and finally years, it was realised that it was pure fantasy.

In the background lies the German freighter "Griefswald" which was seized at Fremantle at the commencement of hostilities. Below is a pic of the "Griefswald" tied up at Fremantle south wharf.

Personal Note: The wharf is instantly recognisable by any Fremantle visitor of the 60's - as kids, we used to go fishing off that very wharf - great for Perth Herring, whiting and trumpeter fish. The wharves remained unchanged until the advent of containerisation and live animal exports. It appears that nearby this wharf has arisen the E Shed Markets.

The guards in the above pictures came from the 86th Infantry Regiment's encampment at Fremantle Park where the formation was mobilised in early August 1914 for local defence activities. 

Fremantle Park was commonly used over the previous decade for various militia activities. As the war progressed, it was also employed as a regular transit camp for AIF members as they anticipated their imminent embarkation for overseas service. Today, it is located near the Fremantle Arts Centre and still remains the regular playing field for Christian Brothers College in Fremantle.

Carew Reynell Diary - Lay in Lemnos Bay all day. Wonderful bay and picturesque surroundings, ie. rocky hills all round with gentle slopes coming down to water's edge studded with pretty little hamlets. Numbers of windmills for corn grinding are dotted all over the cultivated undulating slopes.

1500 Have just heard that we are to be towed back to Kape Tepe [about 50 miles] in small boats or go in torpedo boats tonight. This is to avoid submarines.

Our fellows reported to be just hanging on by the skin of the teeth and had a devil of a time yesterday.

The Turks brought a whole fresh Army Corps against them and it's a question whether they can hold their ground. Transports being hurried up to take them off in case of necessity. The 10th Regiment is into it today and we are here basking in the sun - apparently more bungling by the navy. Naval Staff works seems to be rotten.

We expected dinner the night before last to be our last meal on board and now heavens knows how long it will be before we get off.

9th Light Horse Regiment Location - El Fukhari
9th Light Horse Regiment War Diary - The Regiment moved out of bivouac at 0500 and with the remainder of the Brigade moved from El Fukhari to the beach south of Tel el Marakeb and bivouacked. All the men and horses swam; the water doing the horses a lot of good after the bad weather and constant stress of the last camp.
During the month the evacuations to the Field Ambulance mainly through septic sores, sore throat etc has been very heavy. The septic sores are mainly due to the lack of washing water, the dust and lack of good cooked food, it having been impossible to do Squadron cooking while on the move and digging at El Gamli.
During the period 20 April to date, 120 Other Ranks marched in from Moascar and 110 Other Ranks have been evacuated to Field Ambulance of whom 25 returned to the Regiment within one week from the date of evacuation.
