"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

Outline of the 3rd Australian Light Horse Regiment, AIF

 

Formation

The 3rd Light Horse Regiment was composite regiment formed as part of the 1st Light Horse Brigade, 1st Contingent and attached to the Australian Division. Two squadrons were formed at Morphettville Race Track Training Camp to the west of Adelaide, South Australia, while the third squadron was raised at Brighton Camp, north west from Hobart in Tasmania. Recruits were taken on strength from on 17 August 1914. The recruits were drawn from three Militia Regiments within the 4th and 6th Military Districts which incorporated all of South Australia, the Broken Hill region of New South Wales while the men from Tasmania formed the "C" Squadron. Many of the men went from the Light Horse Militia formation into the AIF Light Horse.

 

"A" Squadron recruited mainly from:

the 23rd Light Horse Regiment region, South Australia.

 

"B" Squadron recruited mainly from:

the 24th Light Horse Regiment region, South Australia.

 

"C" Squadron recruited mainly from:

the 26th Light Horse Regiment region within Tasmania.

 

Training 


3rd Light Horse Regiment Routine Order No 1, 20 August 1914

[Click on page for larger version.]

 

Training of the 3rd Light Horse Regiment occurred at Morphettville Race Track Training Camp from August until September 1914. 

 

Embarkation

Embarkation of the 3rd Light Horse Regiment occurred in two tranches.

 

 HMAT A17 Port Lincoln

 [See: His Majesty's Australian Transports [HMAT] Ships, A17.]

 

The South Australian contingent consisting of "A" and "B" Squadrons, Headquarters and the Machine Gun Section embarked on the HMAT A17 Port Lincoln from Port Adelaide, South Australia, on 20 October 1914. 

 

HMAT A2 Geelong at Hobart, 20 October 1914

[See: His Majesty's Australian Transports [HMAT] Ships, A2.]

 

On the same day but different port, "C" Squadron embarked from Hobart by HMAT A2 Geelong on 20 October 1914.

The 3rd Light Horse Regiment sailed by convoy from Albany and passed by the action against the Emden at the Cocos Islands. The two ships disembarked the 3rd Light Horse Regiment in Egypt on 9 December 1914 where it came together as a Regiment for the first time.

 

Colour Patch

Initially, the only colour separation of the various Australian mounted troops was by use of the pennant. The marker pennants were carried on poles to mark lines troop lines in camps in Egypt. They were not lance pennants as the Australian lancers had red over white pennants on their lances.

 


Pennant of the 3rd Light Horse Regiment

 

While this pennant was useful in distinguishing horse and troop lines, it failed to identify the individual with a unit. The AIF 1st Australian Division Standing Orders issued in December 1914 ordered the Australian Light Horse Regiments to wear a 4 inch wide [10.2cm] blue armband with the regiment name marked on the band in black lettering.

The earlier systems proved to be ineffective so to assist with identification of the men in the various units within the AIF, Divisional Order No 81 (A) Administration was issued at Mena on 8 March 1915 detailing the Colour Patch for the 3rd Light Horse Regiment as others received their colours. The colour patch was made of cloth 1¼ inches wide and 2¾ inches long and worn on the sleeve one inch below the shoulder seam. The colour patch for the 3rd Light Horse Regiment was black over white.

 


3rd Light Horse Regiment Colour Patch

 

The 3rd Light Horse Regiment carried the white Brigade colour as the lower triangle part of the colour patch, while the black unit colour was on the top. This is illustrated with the above presentation.

 

Gallipoli

As mounted troops, the Light Horse was considered to be unsuitable for work in Gallipoli. The mounted troops volunteered to operate as infantry and thus were sent to Gallipoli with the 3rd Light Horse Regiment landing on 12 May 1915. During their whole participation in the Gallipoli campaign, the 3rd Light Horse Regiment played a defensive role. The 3rd Light Horse Regiment left Gallipoli on 14 December 1915.

 

Western Frontier Force

After the return to Egypt, the 3rd Light Horse Regiment reformed and re-equipped. The reorganisation of the Light Horse led to the formation of the ANZAC Mounted Division to which the 1st Light Horse Regiment became a foundation member.

For the first five months of 1916, between January and May, the 3rd Light Horse Regiment was deployed throughout the Nile valley to defend the Egyptian economic centres from the interruption by the Senussi infiltrating from Siwa Oasis. 

 

Defence of Egypt

On 14 May1916, the 1st Light Horse Regiment moved to join its parent brigade, the 1st Light Horse Brigade, which was taking part in the defence of the Suez Canal. The work was hot and monotonous. they remained here until moved to the Romani region to bolster the defence of that area.

 

Sinai

The 1st Light Horse Brigade played an important role in beating back the Turkish invasion of the Suez Canal zone at Romani. Now known as the Battle of Romani which lasted from 4-6 August which was quickly followed by the Battle of Katia and then Bir el Abd on 9 August. All the actions in which the 1st Light Horse Regiment finally led to the defeat of the Ottoman Canal Expeditionary force and its retreat to Bir el Mazar.


Over the next few months, the 1st Light Horse Regiment took part in the Allied advance over the Sinai leading to the fall of Bir el Mazar, then El Arish followed by Bir el Magdhaba and finally Rafa in January 1917. The Ottoman forces were expelled from the Sinai and were poised to be tackled in Palestine.

 

Palestine

The 3rd Light Horse Regiment was assigned to protect the rail line and lines of communications for the first months of 1917. They missed the First Battle of Gaza but were back at the fron by 6 April 1917 and took part in the Second Battle of Gaza on 19 April 1917.

The 3rd Light Horse Regiment took part in the Battle of Beersheba and then the follow up actions that lasted until early January 1918. This included such actions as the advance to Jaffa.

After the fall of Jerusalem the 3rd Light Horse Regiment moved to the Jordan Valley and took parts in operations in this region. This included the taking of Jericho, the attack on Amman during 27 March - 2 April 1918 and Es Salt Raid of 30 April – 4 May 1918. It's last major action prior to the breakout was to repel the German Asien Corps attack on Abu Telllul, 14 July 1918.

 

Amman

At the opening of the final Allied offensive on 19 September 1918, the 1st Light Horse Regiment took part in the invasion of the Moab hills for the third time. This time Amman was captured and finally, the Ottomans called for an Armistice on 30 October 1918.

 

Return to Australia

After the conclusion of hostilities, the 3rd Light Horse Regiment was marked to return to Australia. Prior to that action, one of the saddest actions occurred for the Australian Lighthorsemen; they had to farewell their best friends, the horses. All the Light Horse unit horses' health was ascertained with the fit horses being transferred to the Indian Cavalry while those in poor condition were destroyed by the Veterinary units. On 16 March 1919 the 3rd Light Horse Regiment embarked from Egypt for the long voyage to Australia where the unit was disbanded.

[From: AWM P00522.015]

 

Formation

The 7th Light Horse Regiment was formed as part of the 2nd Light Horse Brigade, 2nd Contingent and attached to the Australian Division. The 7th Light Horse Regiment went through two distinct phases during its formation.

 

1st Formation of the 7th Light Horse Regiment

Initially, it was envisaged that the 7th Light Horse Regiment would be a composite regiment made up of men from three Military Districts: 1st, 4th and 5th Military Districts. The 7th Light Horse Regiment Headquarters was established at the Enoggera Training Camp to the west of Brisbane, Queensland. The basis of the three squadrons was as follows:

"A" Squadron recruited mainly from the 1st Military District which included Queensland and Northern New South Wales.

"B" Squadron recruited mainly from the 4th Military District which included all of South Australia and the Broken Hill region of New South Wales.

"C" Squadron recruited mainly from the 5th Military District which included the entire state of Western Australia.

 

2nd Formation of the 7th Light Horse Regiment

On 17 October 1914, the 7th Light Horse Regiment was completely reformed. The original "A" Squadron was transferred to the 5th Light Horse Regiment, "B" Squadron was formed into the 9th Light Horse Regiment while "C" Squadron became the 10th Light Horse Regiment.

The new 7th Light Horse Regiment was based at the Liverpool Training Camp to the west of Sydney, New South Wales, during September 1914. The recruits were drawn from throughout New South Wales. Many of the men went from the Light Horse Militia formation into the AIF Light Horse.

 

Training 


7th Light Horse Regiment Routine Order No 1, 30 October 1914

[Click on page for larger version.]

 

Training of the 7th Light Horse Regiment occurred at Liverpool Training Camp from October 1914. Later on training was tranferred to Holdsworthy Training Camp to the south of Sydney, New South Wales.

 

Embarkation

Embarkation of the 7th Light Horse Regiment was accomplished in two groups using both the HMAT A33 Ayrshire and HMAT A31 Ajana from Sydney, New South Wales.

7th Light Horse Regiment "C" Squadron and Machine Gun Section, embarked on the HMAT A31 Ajana from Sydney, New South Wales, 19 December 1914.

The 7th Light Horse Regiment sailed to Egypt and disembarked on 1 February 1915.

 

Colour Patch

Initially, the only colour separation of the various Australian mounted troops was by use of the pennant. The marker pennants were carried on poles to mark lines troop lines in camps in Egypt. They were not lance pennants as the Australian lancers had red over white pennants on their lances.

 

Pennant of the 7th Light Horse Regiment

 

While this pennant was useful in distinguishing horse and troop lines, it failed to identify the individual with a unit. The AIF 1st Australian Division Standing Orders issued in December 1914 ordered the Australian Light Horse Regiments to wear a 4 inch wide [10.2cm] blue armband with the regiment name marked on the band in black lettering.

The earlier systems proved to be ineffective so to assist with identification of the men in the various units within the AIF, Divisional Order No 81 (A) Administration was issued at Mena on 8 March 1915 detailing the Colour Patch for the 7th Light Horse Regiment as others received their colours. The colour patch was made of cloth 1¼ inches wide and 2¾ inches long and worn on the sleeve one inch below the shoulder seam. The colour patch for the 7th Light Horse Regiment was black over red.

 

7th Light Horse Regiment Colour Patch

 

The 7th Light Horse Regiment carried the red Brigade colour as the lower triangle part of the colour patch, while the black unit colour was on the top. This is illustrated with the above presentation.

 

Gallipoli

As mounted troops, the Light Horse was considered to be unsuitable for work in Gallipoli. The mounted troops volunteered to operate as infantry and thus were sent to Gallipoli with the 7th Light Horse Regiment landing on 20 May 1915. The Regiment was only deployed on defensive activities on the far right of the front line [the southern regions of Anzac] throughout the stay at Gallipoli. The 7th Light Horse Regiment left the peninsula on 20 December 1915.

 

Defence of Egypt

After the return to Egypt, the 7th Light Horse Regiment reformed and re-equipped. The reorganisation of the Light Horse led to the formation of the ANZAC Mounted Division to which the 7th Light Horse Regiment became a foundation member.

On 28 February 1916, the 7th Light Horse Regiment moved to join its parent brigade, the 2nd Light Horse Brigade, which was taking part in the defence of the Suez Canal. The work was hot and monotonous. They remained here until moved to the Romani region to bolster the defence of that area.

 

Sinai

The 2nd Light Horse Brigade played an important role in beating back the Turkish invasion of the Suez Canal zone at Romani. Now known as the Battle of Romani which lasted from 4-6 August which was quickly followed by the Battle of Katia and then Bir el Abd on 9 August. All the actions in which the 7th Light Horse Regiment finally led to the defeat of the Ottoman Canal Expeditionary force and its retreat to Bir el Mazar.

Over the next few months, the 7th Light Horse Regiment took part in the Allied advance over the Sinai leading to the fall of Bir el Mazar, then El Arish followed by Bir el Magdhaba and finally Rafa in January 1917. The Ottoman forces were expelled from the Sinai and were poised to be tackled in Palestine.

 

Palestine

On 27 March 1917, the 7th Light Horse Regiment took an adventurous role during the First Battle of Gaza. While involved in the encirclement of the city as a prelude to its capture, the 7th Light Horse Regiment received the order to withdraw and return to the starting line. Grudgingly they did so but realised the Turks had snatched victory out of the jaws of defeat.

The 7th Light Horse Regiment  took part in the Second Battle of Gaza on 19 April 1917 and suffered the heaviest casualties since Gallipoli.

The 7th Light Horse Regiment took part in the Battle of Beersheba and then the follow up actions that lasted until early January 1918. After the fall of Jerusalem the 7th Light Horse Regiment moved to the Jordan Valley and took parts in operations in this region. This included the taking of Jericho, the attack on Amman during 27 March - 2 April 1918 and Es Salt Raid of 30 April – 4 May 1918.


Amman

At the opening of the final Allied offensive on 19 September 1918, the 7th Light Horse Regiment took part in the invasion of the Moab hills for the third time. This time Amman was captured with the participation of the 7th Light Horse Regiment. Finally, the Ottomans called for an Armistice on 30 October 1918.

 

Return to Australia

After the conclusion of hostilities, the 7th Light Horse Regiment was marked to return to Australia. Prior to that action, one of the saddest actions occurred for the Australian Lighthorsemen, they had to farewell their best friends, the horses. All the Light Horse unit horses' health was ascertained with the fit horses being transferred to the Indian Cavalry while those in poor condition were destroyed by the Veterinary units.

On 13 March 1919 the 7th Light Horse Regiment was deployed  to assist in suppressing the Egyptian Uprising. When the revolt collapsed, the 7th Light Horse Regiment embarked on the 28 June 1919 for the long voyage to Australia where the unit was disbanded.
