"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

The Australian Light Horse Studies Centre aims to present an accurate history as chroniclers of early Australian military developments from 1899 to 1920.

Brigade Scout Roll
Topic: AIF - DMC - Scouts

Brigade Scouts 

 Roll of Known Scouts in the Light Horse

 

The most well known Brigade Scouts were the 3rd LH Brigade Scouts who were even granted their own particular scout badge which could be worn on their uniform. Harry Bostock then went onto immortalise them in his book "The Long Ride", although, as has been pointed out before and needs reiteration, this book can be a tad bit imaginary when it comes to telling history so if referring to the book, it is wise to check the facts before accepting them from Bostock. Apart from the above caveat, Bostock has done more than anyone to bring their adventures to light.

The following link takes you to a pic of the 3rd LHB Scouts while they were resting in the hills around Tripoli after the war ended. This pic was taken sometime in December 1918 - perhaps a last hurrah laid on for them by Wilson to celebrate and thank them for their work.

Needless to say, if anyone can recognise a face, let us know so that we can begin to identify each man in this group.

The problem with putting together lists like this lies within the fact that rarely do the service records highlight the recruitment of a scout. Also Routine Orders do not list the names of scouts except on the rare occasion. Compiling these lists mainly occurs through reading diaries and other personal sources. No one source will give up this information. the sources are diverse and striking a name is just one of those lucky gems that occasionally comes along to reward the researcher.

Aboriginal service during the Great War, 1914-19

During the Great War, some 500 men of Aboriginal extraction enlisted in the Australian Imperial Forces.  Out of this number, 118 or just over 20% of men of Aboriginal origin saw service in the Australian Light Horse during the war. Some parts of Australia were more liberal in admitting Aboriginal men into the AIF as compared to others. By far the largest proportion of Aboriginal men who enlisted came from Queensland. So many enlisted that nearly one group of reinforcements for the 11th Light Horse Regiment was composed of men from Aboriginal origin, the only time this happened during the war. Like the rest of Australians who enlisted, these men were from all different professions and differing levels of education. They served with similar results as the larger population. Some were heroes, many did their duty well, while some not so well. Others were killed in action, more than a few were wounded in action or gassed. Once in the AIF, there was nothing to seperate the men of Aboriginal origin to other soldiers. They served as Australians and did so with pride and distinction.

 

Aboriginal Light Horsemen who served during the Great War, 1914-19

Below is a list of all known Aboriginal Light Horsemen who served with the Australian Imperial Force during the Great War, 1914-19. The aim is to give credit to the indigenous Australians who served during the Great War but received little recognition for their participation. Hopefully, this long overdue recognition removes this stain from our collective Australian history.

This list is as extensive as possible although it is not exhaustive. Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information but mistakes do occur. Should there be a mistake or an omission please inform the site through the "Post Comment" link at the bottom right hand corner of this post.

Gebel Medwa, Egypt, December 25, 1915
Topic: BatzSe - Senussi

Gebel Medwa

Egypt, 13 December 1915

 

The Senussi on the march at Siwa.
 
[From: Sydney Mail, 19 November 1915, p. 24.]

 

Gebel Medwa, an action fought on 2.5 December 1915 in the Libyan Desert oil Egypt's western frontier ten kilometres south-west of Mersa Matruh, between pro-Turkish Arabs of the Senussi sect and a British expeditionary force under Major-General Alexander Wallace. Following an indecisive action fought at Um Rakhum (q.v.), Wallace's force was confined to Mersa Matruh by bad weather. The Senussi, however, were not so deterred, using the opportunity to occupy positions close to the British base and threatening to bypass it entirely and embark on a march across the desert towards the Nile - the contingency which Wallace was expressly charged with preventing.

 

The affair at Gebel Medwa.

 

Determined to strike first as soon as conditions allowed, Wallace sent a column 2,500 strong up the Khedival Road early on Christmas morning. The first, predominant hill-the Gebel Medwa--was taken by the infantry without resistance soon after dawn. By 7 a.m., however, a large Senussi force was encountered in the Wadi Medwa and a fierce contest ensued in which the newly arrived 1st Battalion of the New Zealand Rifle Brigade played a notable supporting role. Meanwhile, the cavalry assigned to cover the advance--including a composite regiment of Australian light horse squadrons under Major Hon. Dudley Pelham (a British regular) - had embarked on a wide circling movement to the south aimed at turning the enemy's right flank. The leading squadron of this force, led by Major John Bisdee, VC, encountered some Arab cavalry at sunrise and, deploying at the gallop, easily dispersed them before going on to dislodge the occupants of further Senussi positions.

By noon, the centre of the enemy's position had been driven in and the Senussi main force was retreating along the coast. This development was observed by Pelham, who realised that the opportunity now presented to strike a decisive blow. He sought permission to unleash his light horsemen to sever the line of retreat, but-despite repeated pleas - permission to seize the moment was refused by his superiors The chance to add immensely to the Arab losses (estimated at about 300 dead) was therefore passed up, and the outcome of the action was again inconclusive. The British force returned to Mersa Matruh, despite having sustained only thirteen personnel killed and 51 wounded: Australian casualties numbered about seven, including one light horseman killed.

Second Amman, Palestine, September 25, 1918
Topic: BatzJ - 2nd Amman

Second Amman

Palestine, 25 September 1918

 

Second Amman, an action which resulted in this town's occupation by British forces on 25 September 1918, as a direct consequence of the Turkish disaster at Sharon (q.v.) six days earlier. For the first days after the British breakthrough on the coast plain, the Turkish Fourth Army centred on Amman had continued to strongly defend its positions east of the Jordan River. By the morning of 22 September, however, elements of the Anzac Mounted Division (under Major General Edward Chaytor) began to detect signs of a withdrawal underway opposite them, the Turks moving back into the hills away from the river and east towards Amman with the apparent intention of thence making off north to Damascus. Chaytor quickly began pressing onto the enemy's heels, but determined resistance by the Turkish rearguard enabled the main body to get away so that the prisoner haul when Amman was finally taken was only 2,360 and six guns.

Chaytor next turned his attention to a body of 5,000-6,000 Turks at that moment retreating towards him from the positions they formerly occupied at Maan in Arabia, about 200 kilometres south. With its rail lines of supply severed by the British advance, this column faced being destroyed by the army of Hejaz Arabs under Emir Feisal, elements of which were already engaged in constant harassment. Having reached Ziza less than 30 kilometres from Amman but finding their escape route cut off, the enemy column surrendered on 29 September-but only after Anzac mounted troops arrived to provide protection from the 10,000 Arab tribesmen who were waiting to swoop on them. With this, the haul amassed by the division over nine days of operations amounted to 10,300 prisoners and 57 guns, along with much other equipment, all for a cost of 139 casualties (only 27 of whom were killed).
