"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

Trooper Ellis, The Military Force Souvenir Album

 

At the conclusion of his service in the Light Horse during the Great War, Trooper Ellis self published an album of his photographs. The album was bound by hand tooled leather and contained 90 photographs, all of which were captioned.

The photographs cover the period from Romani to 3rd Gaza. There are additional commentaries on the photographs where they are warranted.

Here are a sample of four pictures which give the range of subjects photographed by Trooper Ellis.

Image

 

Resting after Stunt


Quite a nicely composed picture of horse and horseman sleeping after the Battle of Romani.

 

Image

General Kress von Kressenstein Comdr of Gaza Captured by Anzac M Div

This photograph's caption makes a startling claim, that Kress was captured at Gaza. Since Kress was never captured by the Allied forces, the scene is not of Kress but another officer.

 

Image

French Soldiers camped somewhere


Oddly enough, in Ellis's album, there is not one picture of a British soldier. So the next best thing was the French.

 

Image

Remains of a Dead Turk


The album does give the grisly side to the war with a few pictures such as this.

 

The complete photograph album of Trooper Ellis is now available on the Australian Light Horse Studies Centre Site at:

The Military Force Souvenir Album

At the age of 15 he came to Australia with his family who settled in the property known as 'Marmora', located on Corner Street, Burwood, New South Wales. At the age of 18 he was amongst the first intake in 1911 for the new Royal Military College Duntroon although due to war demands was specially graduated and commissioned November 1914 when Lang enlisted in the AIF on 3 November 1914 as a Lieutenant with the 6th LHR (Light Horse Regiment), Machine Gun Section. The 6th LHR was part of the 2nd Light Horse Brigade. This unit embarked from Sydney, New South Wales, on board HMAT A29 Suevic on 21 December 1914. After service at Gallipoli and in anticipation of the August offensive, he was given the rank of Temporary Captain on 4 August 1915. Lang was wounded in action on the evening of 6 August 1915 during the attack on Lone Pine. Days later Lang died of wounds on 13 August 1915 while aboard HS Guildford Castle and was buried at sea. His service is recorded on the Lone Pine Memorial (Panel 4), Gallipoli, Turkey.
