"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

Diaries of AIF Servicemen

Bert Schramm

10 June 1918

 

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.

War Diary, 10 June

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.

Mackay August 1914
Topic: Gen - St - Qld
Mackay too, had their day in August 1914. Packed at the wharf was the whole town ready to see off their sons.

Pic #1: At Mackay wharf, the towns folks were stacked roof high - literally - to farewell their fellow citizen soldiers at the wharf. It is an incredible scene indicating the nationalistic fervour unleashed in Mackay, something a bit more subdued in the previous pix of Rockhampton.

Picture from The Queenslander, 5 September 1914, p. 23.

Looking at the streamers on the ship and the crowd packed upon the wharf, it is amazing that no injuries of any note occurred.

Pic #2: The boat departs. This boat is more of a small coastal steamer rather than anything that could ever be called a ship.

Picture from The Queenslander, 5 September 1914, p. 23.


A small boat carrying an excited cargo.
