"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

Bert Schramm's Diary, 29 December 1918
Topic: Diary - Schramm

During part of the course of his military service with the AIF, 2823 Private Herbert Leslie Schramm, a farmer from White's River, near Tumby Bay on the Eyre Peninsular, 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 1918 breakout 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.

The country in which the Brigade was now operating was extremely high, rough and rocky and transport difficulties were increased. Camels were used and found to be very unsatisfactory over the high and rocky hills, and very slow in movement; their feet were cut on the rocks and their further use off the tracks was forbidden. Improvisations were made in places and wheeled transport was able to be brought forward to Units Headquarters. Parties from the local villages assisted in this work, receiving from three to seven Egyptian Pounds per day, according to working capacity. There was little enemy activity with the exception of occasional sniping throughout the day and night.
