"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

Lieutenant General Sir Henry Merrick Lawson KCB (1859 – 1933)

This album comprises his report. Each report page is posted twice, the first post being a full sized document while the second is of smaller size noted with an "s" at the end of the link.

The Frederickson Photograph Collection

 

The Frederickson Collection comprises 8 photographs donated by Hugh Frederickson of people who meant a great deal to his father, Andrew Frederickson during the Great War.

From this group, three photographs can be readily identified and these are listed at the beginning of the album.

Sadly, the balance are now nameless faces until someone is able to identify them.

A Knapsack Bible with a bullet hole

The "Knapsack Bible" was a popular gift for soldiers for use in South Africa 1899-1900. It was bound in Khaki and sold for 2/6d and was sent to the specific trooper by book post for 3d. Three Bibles are displayed in this collection.

During the Great War, 2450 Private James Benjamin COWAN received a Knapsack Bible from his mother. This Bible was originally sent to South Africa with 56 Trooper Peter Bruce RANKINE, who served with the 2nd South Australian Mounted Rifles. This is the Bible upon which most of the album bases its material.

Two other Knapsack Bibles are displayed to illustrate the widespread nature of the book. One was distributed by JH Angas and the other was sent to Trooper T Richardson of the Imperial Yeomanry

Ernest Northcroft MERRINGTON

 

Ernest Northcroft MERRINGTON, 38 year old Presbyterian Clergyman of the St Andrews Presbyterian Church, Creek Street, Brisbane, Queensland and married to Flora Merrington, of 'Northcroft', Crowther Street, Hillend, Sth, Brisbane, Queensland. He enlisted on 8 September 1914 as a Chaplain (Class 1) in the Chaplains' Corps.
