"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

Topic: BW General

General Topics

British POW's at Waterval Camp

 

British POW's at Waterval Camp outside Pretoria

[From The Queenslander, 5 May 1900, p. 839.]


The Boers fully understand the various uses of barb-wire. They have employed it to confuse a charging enemy and when sections of that enemy have fallen into their hands they have utilised this comparatively modern invention to keep their prisioners  within bounds. The captured British officers who have been taken to Pretoria are housed in the State Model School from which it will be remembered Mr Winston Churchill made his escape. The school is a modern and well built building, having many large and lofty rooms and surrounded by a broad and cool veranda. The officers have their own cooks and servants. The bathrooms are commodious and books can be procured from the State Library. The rations supplied to the prisoners are of much the same quantity and quality as those issued to the wives and families of burghers throughout the State.

The great bulk of the captured men, however, are in camp at Waterval, the new military prison camp outside Pretoria. Their quarters consist of a series of long galvanised iron sheds. In them the soldiers make themselves comfortable and seem to have settled down to a regular garrison existence. The large enclosure is surrounded by a barbed wire entanglement. Each corner is protected by stockades, on which Maxim guns are mounted. Each stockade is in electric communication with the others and the whole camp seems to form an absolutely secure detention ground for the prisoners. The sentry appear to be men of middle age. They are in every day mufti and look anything but military, the only evidence of soldierly duties being their rifles and bandoleers.

AIF Headquarters

3rd Echelon

The duties of the 3rd Echelon

 

The duties of the 3rd Echelon.

When exploring service records, routine orders and other files relating to the administration of the AIF, the one constant in all the paper work is the reference to the 3rd Echelon. This ubiquitous organisation was the driving engine of the AIF in Egypt, France and Britain. 

As these posts unfold, the duties of the 3rd Echelon, as seen by the Commanding Officers at the time, will unfold. This is the first instalment.

 

RE OFFICERS

Precedence, Promotion, Resignations and Relinquishments are properly questions for the A.H.S., G.H.Q.

If Commanding Officers referred such questions to their Headquarters for transmission through the proper channels to the A.H.S., G.H.Q. the 3rd Echelon would only be interested in so far as the record is concerned, i.e., when London Gazettes and Lists of Appointments etc., published with General Routine Orders are received. Care has to be taken to avoid encroaching on the A.M.S.'s Department.

PRECEDENCE OF OFFICERS.

Army Order 35 of 1915. All officers belonging, transferred, posted or attached to a unit will take precedence therein and in their respective ranks according to the date of the appointment or promotion to those ranks and not according to the date on which they actually joined the unit for duty.

The London Gazette has at different times laid down that Officers of the overseas contingents take rank with Officers of the Regular Army from date of appointment or promotion.

RANK AND RESIGNATION OF OFFICERS.

G.R.O.'s and Circulars published as required. T. F. Regulations 9B.

All these questions are finally disposed of by the A.H.S., G.H.Q. and should be submitted through the Commanding Officers to Headquarters of Formations for forwarding if necessary to G.H.Q.

T. F. Regulations legislate for special selection for promotion where such a course is considered necessary in the interests of the Service. Officers in the New Army may be promoted by selection and not necessarily by seniority.

 

Seniority and precedence of an officer is important in allocating temporary or acting positions, something that happened on a regular basis in a unit.

Bert Schramm

 

Bert Schramm

2823 Private Herbert Leslie SCHRAMM, a 22 year old Farmer from Whites River, South Australia. He enlisted on 17 February 1916; and at the conclusion of the war Returned to Australia, 10 July 1919.

During part of the course of his military service with the AIF, Bert Schramm kept a diary of his life. Bert was not a man of letters so this diary was produced with great effort on his behalf. Bert made a promise to his sweetheart, Lucy Solley, that he would do so after he received the blank pocket notebook wherein these entries are found. As a Brigade Scout since September 1918, he took a lead part in the September Offensive by the Allied forces in Palestine. Bert's diary entries are placed alongside those of the 9th Light Horse Regiment to which he belonged and to the 3rd Light Horse Brigade to which the 9th LHR was attached. On this basis we can follow Bert in the context of his formation.

3rd LHB, AIF, Gallipoli Signal No. 7, 1 June 1915

Gallipoli Signal No. 7, 1 June 1915

 

Gallipoli Signal No. 7, 1 June 1915

 

The transcription follows: 

 

Sent at 6.23 pm
To Third Infantry Brigades
1 June 1915

Following message received from Corps Headquarters begins: Informaiton received yesterday indicates that first Army Corps troops taking eith transports say sixteen thousand men from fear of submarines disembarked and left Constantinople for Peninsular via Uzun Kupri and Keshan AAA The leading echelons of these troops are probably reachin a point somewhere between Anzac and Bulair this afternoon AAA The First Army Corps are considered good troops ends


From Australian Division
Time 6.10pm
CRB White


 

This is an interesting signal detailing an intelligence report forecasting the arrival of about 16,000 men from the 1st Corps to Gallipoli.

 

Note:

One of the most complete set of Light Horse unit signals at Gallipoli belongs to the 3rd Light Horse Brigade. Signals provide a window into the unvarnished form of history. These are the comments made by people who had important needs that required immediate attention. As such, they tell a story about a campaign that existed before the occurence of the newspaper reports leading to the Official Histories and all the other works that followed. Since they do not originate in a vacuum, it is the immediacy of the signal in a dense communication transfer that gives it a unique currency. It is a moment in time. We need all the other items such as the War Diary, Routine Orders and lastly, the published books to get a fully appreciation of the humble signal.

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.
