"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

COMPULSORY TRAINING.

A NEW ARRANGEMENT.

Melbourne, March 13.

An arrangement has been made between, the Commonwealth Defence authorities and the War Office by which youths liable to compulsory training in Australia, who become temporarily domiciled in England, may serve in the interval as members of King Edward's horse. Any rank which they attain will entitle them to an equivalent rank in the Australian forces on their return. Provision has been made for a grant of £5 a year to the King Edward's Horse for the training, and for a certified record to be kept of the work which each trainee may perform.
