"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

5th Australian Light Horse Regiment

Outline

 

5th Light Horse and the Koala Mascot

[From: The Queenslander,  19 December 1914, p. 23.]

 

Formation

The 5th Light Horse Regiment was formed as part of the 2nd Light Horse Brigade, 2nd Contingent and attached to the Australian Division. Recruits went to the Enoggera Training Camp to the west of Brisbane, Queensland, on 18 August 1914. The recruits were drawn from the four main Militia Regiments within the 1st Military District which incorporated all of Queensland, Darwin and Northern New South Wales. The men from New South Wales found themselves mainly in "B" Squadron. Many of the men went from the Light Horse Militia formation into the AIF Light Horse.

 

"A" Squadron recruited mainly from:

1st Light Horse Regiment (6 men).

 

"B" Squadron recruited mainly from:

3rd Light Horse Regiment (6 men)

4th Light Horse Regiment (6 men)
 

"C" Squadron recruited mainly from:

2nd Light Horse Regiment (6 men); and,

27th Light Horse Regiment (5 men).

 

Training 


5th Light Horse Regiment Routine Order No 2, 17 October 1914

[Click on page for larger version.]

 

Training of the 5th Light Horse Regiment occurred at Enoggera Training Camp from August until September 1914. 

 

Embarkation

The 5th Light Horse Regiment entrained from Newmarket Station, Brisbane, 12 December 1914, and travelled to Liverpool Camp, Sydney where they remained until embarkation details were finalised. Embarkation of the 5th Light Horse Regiment occurred by the HMAT A34 Persic from Sydney, New South Wales, on 21 December 1914 .

[See: His Majesty's Australian Transports [HMAT] Ships, A34.

 

The HMAT A34 Persic  embarked from Sydney, New South Wales, on 21 December 1914 with the bulk of the Regiment.

[See: His Majesty's Australian Transports [HMAT] Ships, A44.
 

An advance party was despatched on the HMAT A44 Vestalia. The advanced party contained the full complement of "A" Troop from "B" Squadron. In addition, all officer's batmen were included in the party. The advance party had 26 men from the 1st Reinforcements attached for embarkation.

The 5th 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 5th 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 5th 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 5th Light Horse Regiment was light blue over red.

 

5th Light Horse Regiment Colour Patch

 

The 5th Light Horse Regiment carried the red Brigade colour as the lower triangle part of the colour patch, while the light blue 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 5th Light Horse Regiment landing on 20 May 1915. The Regiment was only deployed on defensive activities throughout the stay at Gallipoli. On 29 August 1915, the Regiment received another squadron as reinforcements. "B" Squadron, 11th Light Horse Regiment was absorbed and renamed as "D" Squadron, 5th Light Horse Regiment. The 5th Light Horse Regiment  left the peninsula on 20 December 1915.

 

Defence of Egypt

After the return to Egypt, the 5th 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 5th Light Horse Regiment became a foundation member.

On 28 February 1916, the 5th 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 5th 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 5th 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 5th Light Horse Regiment took an adventurous role during the First Battle of Gaza. While involved in street fighting as a prelude to taking the city, the 5th Light Horse Regiment received the order to withdraw and return to the starting line. Grudgingly they did so but realised the Turks has snatched victory out of the jaws of defeat.

The 5th Light Horse Regiment  took no part in the Second Battle of Gaza on 19 April 1917.

The 5th 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 5th 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 5th Light Horse Regiment took part in the invasion of the Moab hills for the third time. This time Amman was captured.  During this time the 5th Light Horse Regiment took part in one of the more unusual actions during the Great War. On 29 September 1918, two squadrons surrounded the town of Ziza which held 4,500 Turkish troops. The Turkish commander agreed to surrender the following day as they were concerned that the Arab guerrillas in the distance would take the town and slaughter everyone in it. The 5th Light Horse Regiment agreed to protect the Turkish garrison and so that night, both Turk and Australians joined to defend against a foe. In the morning, true to their word, the Turkish garrison surrendered all their weapons and went into captivity.

Finally, the Ottomans called for an Armistice on 30 October 1918.

 

Return to Australia

After the conclusion of hostilities, the 5th 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 5th Light Horse Regiment was deployed  to assist in suppressing the Egyptian Uprising. When the revolt collapsed, the 5th Light Horse Regiment embarked on the 28 June 1919 for the long voyage to Australia where the unit was disbanded.

Scouting or Protective and Tactical Reconnaissance, Part 9

Scouting For Information

Frederick Allan Dove

 

3rd Light Horse Brigade Scouts in the hills at Tripoli, December 1918

 

In 1910, Major Frederick Allan Dove, DSO, wrote a book on a subject he was very familiar with through practical experience called Scouting or Protective and Tactical Reconnaissance. This book set the intellectual framework for the formation of the Brigade Scouts during the Sinai and Palestine Campaigns as part of the Great War.

Dove, FA, Scouting or Protective and Tactical Reconnaissance, 1910.

 
II. - Scouting For Information Or Tactical Reconnaissance By Patrols.

General Remarks.

Reconnoitring Patrols are parties detached from a halted or moving force to obtain information. Their sphere of action is beyond the line of Outposts or the Screen referred to in I. Being without support and in constant danger of meeting superior hostile forces, their action must be chiefly of a "stealthy" nature. They rely for safety in an emergency on the sharpness of their eyes and ears, the quickness of their wits, and the speed of their horses. The number of men told off to form a Reconnoitring, Patrol will vary according to the work to he done, but they larger the number the more risk of detection and failure. Three or four men and a leader make a handy patrol; really good Scouts, who have confidence, in themselves and on another. will prefer to work in pairs. Occasionally strong patrols of from 12 to 100 men are sent out on some -special mission, but even then the actual Scouting will he done by two or three small squads of Scouts, the remainder being really an escort or support.

"Scouting" in its true sense is the work done by the individuals composing the Reconnoitring Patrols. It is an art, and can only be acquired by a limited number of men who possess the natural gifts of body and mind. Out of a squadron of picked Australians who went to South Africa, not more than twenty men became good Scouts, and only half were really first-class. Yet at the beginning a hundred men in that squadron believed that they were born Scouts. After a few experiences they were mostly very willing to let somebody else do the work.

'From my reading and experience I conclude that there should be a thoroughly trained Corps of Scouts at the disposal of every General to do the dangerous and difficult duty of reconnoitring.

1. - Composition of Patrols.

Reconnoitring Patrols should be composed of trained Scouts, drawn either from regimental establishments or from the Corps referred to above. A signaller or two with equipment may sometimes be attached. A cavalry pioneer with means of hasty demolition has been found useful with a patrol, but properly trained Scouts could do this work themselves.

It must always be borne in mind that to include in a patrol any person who is not himself a trained Scout is an encumbrance and a danger.

It is it great advantage or the men to have practised and worked together. Scouts should be organised, there fore, into permanent patrols of four. Two or more "Fours" can be combined when larger patrols are required.

2. - Preliminary Instructions and Preparations.

The patrol leader detailed for a reconnaissance should receive very explicit instructions, as to
(1) the object of the reconnaissance - that is, what he is to report on;
(2) when he is to start and when reports will be expected;
(3) to whom and where reports are to be made;
(4) what is known of the enemy;
(5) whether friendly patrols or troops are likely to be met.
The instructions should be supplemented by a sketch or by reference to a map. If our column is likely to march during the absence of the patrol, the leader should be informed.

The leader next decides on the route to be taken (when this has not been prescribed), by reference to the map, a view of so much of the country as can be seen, or by his local knowledge, or by a combination of those.

Next he retails to his men the instructions he has received and the plans he has formed, taking them very fully into his confidence, in order to arouse their interest in the mission and to secure their intelligent co-operation. He now has a final inspection of his own and his men’s arms and kits and horses, to see that everything is in good order and that nothing is carried which will glitter by day or rattle by night. The patrol then sets out.

3. - Formation o f the Patrol, by Day.

The formations of a patrol of four by day have been gone into fully in I., Section 11. The same principles govern the organisation and movements of larger patrols.

Organisation of the Patrol-that is, the allotment of definite duties to individuals-should never be neglected. The leader should remember that he is the head and brain of the patrol and the Chief Observer; he uses the other members to protect and assist him, but must not rely on their conclusions; he must always see for himself.

The more compact the formation of a patrol the better the chance of avoiding detection, but the greater the possibility of all being shot down or cut off. Therefore, the leader must study every bit of country with a view to what is best to be done in each case. In thick bush or forest the only possible formation is Indian File, the men following the leader more or less closely.

It will frequently be advisable for portion of the patrol to remain halted (dismounted) in concealment while one or two Scouts examine doubtful localities. 4. Formations at Night.

The only formations for dark nights are File (twos) or Indian File. The commander leads, and has with him a very keen Scout and a horse-holder. Then follow the Scouts, singly or in pairs. A non-com. or very trustworthy man brings up the rear. When the patrol halts, a Scout previously detailed moves out a few yards to the right, and similarly another to the left. These men leave their horses with their mates. If a patrol is so large that the tread of men or horses and rattling of equipment is likely to interfere with the hearing of the front and rear Scouts the advanced " point" and the rear man are kept well away from the main body, connection being maintained by links," thus:



The links must be clearly visible to each other, and near enough to pass quietly spoken orders or messages.

The leader must largely devote himself to maintaining the required direction. He, therefore, has with him a good .Night Scout. Note that some excellent day scouts are not at all reliable at night. This Scout must be relieved every hour or so, as the strain on his eyes, ears and nerves is very great.

Halts are frequent at night. During these it may be necessary for the leader and his nearest Scout to go ahead some distance on foot to examine a suspicious object, hence the need of the horse holder. The N.C.O. at the head of the main body should be informed when the leader leaves and when he returns.

4th Light Horse Field Ambulance Formation
Topic: AIF - 4B - 4 LHFA

4th Light Horse Field Ambulance

Initiating instructions for the 4th LHFA Formation

 

In January 1917, it was decided to split the Australian and New Zealand Mounted Division (Anzac MD) into two division, the new Anzac Mounted Division and a new division called the Imperial Mounted Division. At the core of the new Imperial Mounted Division was the Australian 3rd Light Horse Brigade which was attached to the original division and the British Yeomanry formation, the 5th Mounted Division. One new Australian Light Horse Brigade was formed from the existing Camel Regiments [See: Imperial Camel Corps - units] which was re-named the 4th Light Horse Brigade. This was the reformation of an original 4th Australian Light Horse Brigade, 1915 which was disbanded in 1915 upon arrival at Gallipoli as reinforcements.

Part of the process was the creation of a specific Field Ambulance unit to service the immediate medical requirements of the Brigade. As no such unit existed, by necessity, the staffing had to come from experienced members of other Field Ambulance and Hospital formations. This process was seen as a potential dumping ground for the other operational units. To avoid this, the following instruction was issued:

 

4th LHFA Formation Instructions, 31 Janaury 1917, p.1.

[Click on page for larger version.]

 

Key information included a circumvention of utilising the new unit as a dumping ground with the following introductory paragraph:

1. As there is no reserve of Medical Officers of rank and file in this country, the intention is to form only one section at present, but this section will have 5 Officers; when personnel arrive from Australia the Ambulance will be brought up to strength.

For the first section it will be necessary to call on existing units for some of their personnel thus bringing them temporarily below establishment; the necessity for this is regretted bu I rely on the good feeling and spirit of fair play in commanding officers not to send their worst men to the new unit but to allow their drasft to be a fair average of their whole unit. These men will not be struck of the strength of the present units until their usefulness in the new unit has been ascertained. A definite period of probation will be fixed later.

Men who can ride are preferable and unless a sufficiency can pass the riding test the non riders will be returned to their units and others called for in their places.

 

To allow the gazetting of the new formation with the prescribed ration strength, orders were issued from AIF Headquarters in Egypt on 24 January 1917 to commence the process of formation.

Below is a copy of that letter.

 

4th LHFA Formation Order, 24 Janaury 1917, p.1.

The acknowledgement of low reinforcements to the Australian Army Medical Corps was indicative of the general manpower problems faced by the AIF as support for the war waned in Australia. To compensate for this, supplying the necessary manpower meant stripping members from existing formations. This included both officers and men.

The letter notes the newly funded positions which included:

  • 1 Warrant Officer
  • 2 Staff Sergeants
  • 2 Sergeants
  • 7 Corporals

To minimalise the impact of stripping down other formation, each unit in the AIF based in Egypt was asked to contribute personnel. The following is the detail contained in the letter:

  • 1st LHFA - 5 Other Ranks
  • 2nd LHFA - 5 Other Ranks
  • 3rd LHFA - 5 Other Ranks
  • 2nd Australian Starionary Hospital - 5 Other Ranks
  • 14th Australian General Hospital - 6 Other Ranks
  • 12 x Light Horse Regiments (1 man from each Regiment)  - 12 Other Ranks
  • 3 x Machine Gun Squadrons (1 man from each Squadron)  - 3 Other Ranks
  • Field Squadron - 1 Other Rank
  • Signal Squadron - 1 Other Rank
  • Divisional Headquarters - 1 Other Rank
  • Training Camp, Moascar - 6 Other Ranks
  • 4th Camel Regiment - 1 Other Rank
  • 7th Sanitary Section - 8 Other Ranks

Total Composition of the 4th LHFA = 59 Other Ranks.

The process of assembling the 4th LHFA was finalised by early February 1917.
