"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

Changes in Militia Structure, Military Order 2, 1911
Topic: Militia - Military Orders
As the  Kitchener Report of February 1910 plan unfurled itself, problems began to emerge regarding the nature of units, their locations and the ability to service an area with adequate coverage. All the things that happen when theory meets reality. The consequence was a change in some of the formations. This was outlined in Military Order No. 2 of 1911. A copy of the order is reproduced below.





One can see all the initial flaws being ironed out. For example, in South Australia, the removal of Kangarilla from No. 4 Squadron, 17th ALHR (Australian Light Horse Regiment) and its replacement with Morphett Vale in South Australia makes geographical sense. The good men of Kangarilla must have had a dreadful time attempting to parade with the full squadron. There are many other such alterations.

At Ayr in Queensland, it was recognised that there were sufficient men to form half a squadron for the 15th ALHR. Rather than 6th Squadron being confined to two troops from Townsville, Troops 1 and 2, Ayr was given provision to raise a further two troops, they being Troops 3 and 4.

In a larger change, in Victoria the 11th ALHR was split into two new formations, the  11th and 19th ALHRs. This additional regiment forced a change to the Brigade structure which followed in its wake.

With a recognition of a changing world, Electric Companies were increased in size. Such a move reflected the growing demand for electrical facilities upon the new battlefield.

Longreach Rifle Club Parade, September 1914
Topic: Gen - St - Qld

Following the march past of the troops, detailed in Longreach, 1914 the good citizens of Longreach also organised every motor vehicle to be part of the parade.

Picture #1: The motor vehicle parade. This picture has been split into two parts to get the full range of view without obscuring the detail.


Picture from The Queenslander, 5 September 1914, p. 28.

A full sized version of this picture is available at this address:

Longreach  Motor Parade, September 1914

This parade is quite spectacular in both the organisation and execution. Someone put a great deal of work in making this parade happen.

Picture #2: The only military men left in Longreach - the Rifle Club. This is the whole club on parade.

Picture from The Queenslander, 5 September 1914, p. 28.

Not too many eligible military men left in the town any more.

1st Battalion New Zealand Rifle Brigade, report of action at Bir Shola, 23 January 1916
Topic: AIF - WFF

Below are two pages from a post action report written on 23 January 1916 regarding the participation of the 1st Battalion, New Zealand Rifle Brigade, as part of the Western Frontier Force. The specific narrative deals with the affair at Bir Shola on the same date. The language is immediate and uncontrived making it a far better account than those that followed later. It is the honesty of the account which makes this compelling reading.
