"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

Colonel Alfred Emanuel OTTER, 5th & 6th Victorian Mounted Rifles Commander

 

 

The Contingent departed on 15th February 1901, consisting of 46 officers, 971 other ranks, with 1,099 horses. Six officers, 48 other ranks were killed or died; 14 officers, 69 others were struck off in South Africa; 60 officers, 854 others returned to Australia.

For information regarding this unit, see:

5th & 6th Victorian Mounted Rifles

All photographs are extracted from The Leader, 16 February 1901, Supplement pp. 2 - 10.

A note about the photographic reproduction. The pictures appear graining and dark while sometimes very vague. This is because of the input material being derived from microfilm. The actual pages are no better in production and so, unless the original photographs come to light, this is all we have from the images of the men who embarked. A partial image is always better than none at all.

2nd Light Horse Regiment War Diary and Routine Orders, 1915, Album Contents

 

2nd Australian Light Horse Regiment Routine Order No. 19, 4 January 1915, p. 1

 

The Routine Orders, the item which is the purest history of a unit. It is the unvarnished story detailing aspirations and events as they unfolded without any vainglorious gloss attached to them as is found in the usual run of books on these campaigns, especially the Official Histories. Histories are written with an eye upon the prevailing cultural imperatives while the Routine Orders are written to maintain the efficiency of a Regiment on a day to day basis.

If there is one item that contains a wealth of detail regarding the participation of a Regiment within the Sinai and Palestine campaign, it is the Routine Orders. Each paragraph hints at enough material to make an exciting chapter in any book.

To add further to the Regimental story, the War Diary entries for the periods covered by the Routine Orders are placed in line. They should be read in conjunction to get a clear picture of the Regiment.

The Routine Orders of the 2nd Light Horse Regiment are not complete and so are filed as found. During and after the conclusion of the war, no great imperative was felt for their preservation. Their needs had been served and so preservation was of the lowest order. That we have them today is a blessing and we can only thank the foresight of the clerk who preserved what we have now.

It is the unvarnished story detailing aspirations and events as they unfolded without any vainglorious gloss attached to them as is found in the usual run of books on these campaigns, especially the Official Histories. Histories are written with an eye upon the prevailing cultural imperatives while the Routine Orders are written to maintain the efficiency of a Regiment on a day to day basis.

If there is one item that contains a wealth of detail regarding the participation of a Regiment within the Gallipoli, Sinai and Palestine campaign, it is the Routine Orders. Each paragraph hints at enough material to make an exciting chapter in any book.

To add further to the Regimental story, the War Diary entries for the periods covered by the Routine Orders are placed in line. They should be read in conjunction to get a clear picture of the Regiment.

The Routine Orders of the 2nd Light Horse Regiment are not complete and so are filed as found. During and after the conclusion of the war, no great imperative was felt for their preservation. Their needs had been served and so preservation was of the lowest order. That we have them today is a blessing and we can only thank the foresight of the clerk who preserved what we have now.

Prior to embarkation, the first 12th Australian Light Horse Regiment, AIF, produced a photographic record of the Regiment. Since there are no other official photographs existing of this Regiment, this has become the best reference for that unit. We have named photographs of various members. Not many, but they are in this booklet. Also the various sub-units have been photographed. While we are not able to name the men in the photographs, we do have a record of their anonymous images. 

12th Australian Light Horse Regiment, AIF, embarked from Sydney, New South Wales on board HMAT A29 Suevic, 13 June 1915 and HMAT A44 Vestalia, 22 June 1915.
