"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

Bert Schramm

 

Bert Schramm

2823 Private Herbert Leslie SCHRAMM, a 22 year old Farmer from Whites River, South Australia. He enlisted on 17 February 1916; and at the conclusion of the war Returned to Australia, 10 July 1919.

During part of the course of his military service with the AIF, Bert Schramm kept a diary of his life. Bert was not a man of letters so this diary was produced with great effort on his behalf. Bert made a promise to his sweetheart, Lucy Solley, that he would do so after he received the blank pocket notebook wherein these entries are found. As a Brigade Scout since September 1918, he took a lead part in the September 1918 breakout by the Allied forces in Palestine. Bert's diary entries are placed alongside those of the 9th Light Horse Regiment to which he belonged and to the 3rd Light Horse Brigade to which the 9th LHR was attached. On this basis we can follow Bert in the context of his formation.

Bert Schramm's Diary commences with this note in the front:

Dear Bert

this is not a proper diary but will do just as well I think its Else's book she never uses it and says she don't want it. I will try and send you a proper one later.

From Roy.

Lucy sent you a parcel the other day Mother put a book and pencil and a few other things in it.

XXXXXXXXX From Nan.

The following entries are extracted and transcribed from the 9th Light Horse Regiment War Diary, the originals of which are held by the Australian War Memorial. There are 366 entries on this site. Each day has entries as they occurred from 1914 to 1919. In addition to the 9th Light Horse Regiment War Diary, when appropriate, entries from the 3rd Light Horse Brigade War Diary and other regiments with the Brigade will also appear. Entries from the unit history, Darley, TH, With the Ninth Light Horse in the Great War, Adelaide, Hassell Press, 1924 will also appear from time to time. The aim is to give the broadest context to the story and allow the reader to follow the day to day activities of the regiment. If a relative happened to have served in the regiment during the Great War, then this provides a general framework in which the individual story may be told.

9th Light Horse Regiment Location - Walkers Ridge
9th Light Horse Regiment War Diary - 0700 A party of 3 Officers and 50 Other Ranks [Volunteers] assembled in Saps 4 and 3 to assault Turk's Trench 75 yards away - object to capture Maxim if there.
Bombs not forthcoming from Brigade Headquarters, therefore at 2030 the projected assault was cancelled.
3rd Light Horse Brigade War Diary - Very quiet. No shelling at night for first time. Returned cycles and motor cycles to base Alexandria.

Carew Reynell Diary - We have had a very quiet time the last few days although the usual minor incidents occur. The night before last word came in to our dugout from the front trenches that the outpost of twelve men and one sergeant that had to go out and occupy Turk's Point had come back and reported that the point was occupied by the Turks. They were all so certain that they had not mistaken the end of No. 5 Sap for it's that they almost persuaded me. However, I felt pretty sure they had and in any case the CO and I decided that in any case we must occupy it and I suggested that I had better take them out and Colonel was evidently relieved at the suggestion as it was quite dark now - 2100 - and there was plenty of opportunity of losing one's way and shooting our own men or being shot. So after giving each man to clearly understand what to do in case we found Turks there, we went out with bayonets fixed and every man knowing that we would rush with the bayonet and not fire if we found the point occupied. After a very winding clamber along, up and down bramble covered cliffs the guide who had been there before and was supposed to know it whispered to me "There they are" at the same time pointing to the end of our own No. 5 Sap. However, I knew the general lay of the country and knew it must be our own sap and that the "Turks" must be close to our left so we dashed off at it and found it  - empty! This is the danger here. Fellows get excited, lose their sense of direction and fire on their own men if one isn't very careful. I had a very much more exciting experience yesterday, however. I went out with three patrol leaders to make a reconnaissance from two points away along the beach, to our left flank, and respectively known as No. 1 and No. 2 Post.

They are only changed at night as there are a number of snipers that can bring fire to bear on them and the spaces in between. About thirty men have been killed by this fire although only crossing in the dark and one was killed and one wounded the night before last. However a covered way has now been made for No. 1 Post and a Staff Captain told me that by crawling one could get across and the consensus of opinion was that it was good enough to try so off we went. I was told to tell the CO No. 2 Post to send in some prisoners he had at once if we weren't heavily sniped at and if we were to keep them there until after dark. About 6 or 7 shots were fired at us and none of them very close and they decided to send them in.  They ran across the swept zones one at a time and gone on all right until they got to one zone of about 50 yards when the snipers gradually got to work hotter and hotter and by the time the last Turk ran across, these prisoners had voluntarily come in - deserters, he got a very hot passage and then the last man of the guard got a perfect storm of bullets. The officer in charge called out to us not to come as it was too hot and indeed we could see that for ourselves. We waited an hour and then tried it and I had a dozen shots round me quite close enough and one of the others of my party also had some very close shaves. The other two for some reason or other hardly had a shot fired at them. When I got back I found that the colonel and Weik and several other officers had been watching us through the glasses and wondering whether it might be me and my party. They found it quite exciting. So did I..

The May Day Parade at Adelaide Children's Hospital

 

After the landings at Gallipoli, The Critic, 5 May 1915, wanted to be seen to be patriotic but complained that everyone was being kept in the dark. The commentary in the newpaper indicates the common sentiment being expressed at the time.

THE TRAGEDY NEARER HOME.

Within the last few' days the people of South Australia have been brought to a tragical realisation of the dark days of the war. Up till then, somehow, while there had really been no sunny hours, the clouds of sorrow had not yet gathered. Our boys were away on active service, but were not in the firing line. There had come from Egypt, indeed, lamentations because of the idleness and the postponed day of action. Many of the soldiers had, with humorous protest, declared that they had become known as "Kitchener's six-bob-a-day tourists." Every gallant heart was throbbing in anticipation of the day when the real thing would happen, and the Australiap would be given an opportunity to show the stuff they were made of. It was no empty boasting of patriotism that had taken them away from home to foreign fields. But hope deferred was making the heart sick.

PERPLEXING SECRECY.

Then, suddenly, there came from Egypt the intimation that the Australians and the New Zealanders had gone, to the Dardanelles to push back the Germanised Turk, and to help the Allies to force their way to Constantinople. It was then that relatives and friends in the Commonwealth began to realise that it was becoming a serious business, and that any day the grim news of casualties of fallen heroes would flash through. The remarkable feature was the manner in which the sad, but inevitable, tidings came to the anxiously-waiting public. A veil of absurd and perplexing secrecy was drawn by the censors over the casualty lists. Australia found herself in the extraordinary position of receiving from the homeland messages congratulatory of the deeds performed by her sons on the field of battle and of being entirely ignorant of what had been accomplished. There were expressions of sympathy with those who had heroes in the fight-but nobody knew whether they had fought, or where, or when. In South Australia the newspapers published telegrams from the Governor- General complimenting the people on the magnificent part their soldiers had played in the tragic theatre of war, and nobody knew why. The Defence Department may have had good reasons for adopting this strange policy of secrecy, but up to the present they have not been revealed, and certainly cannot be understood. Red tape is surely the last thing that ought to be tied around the eagerly-sought advices of war casualties. However, that was the position, and in these days of military discipline there is apparently nothing to do but submit to it. It is most unfortunate, but it seems inevitable.

HEROES ON THE FIELD OF HONOR.

Already the soldiers of South Australia have shone resplendently on the field of honor. At the time of writing, five heroes have answered to the "Last Post," and half a dozen others have been wounded-a small total, comparatively, but these are early clays to estimate the length of the gallant roll call. Of this we are sure: there will be none who will shrink from meeting the foe with his heart full of courage and a proper sense of what is expected from a British soldier - the patriotism which knows no bar to duty in a game characterised by awful odds. Here Death is to be met in glorious fashion, for the sword is unsheathed in a nation's honor and for the defence of an Empire's liberty. The young sons of Greater Britain have shown that they have in them the fibre which has made the great traditions of the Empire, and that they can hold a trench and storm a hill with all the clashing gallantry of the troops of England herself. It is a magnificent thing to have this demonstrated. Australia proved in the Boer War that she was not wanting in the stuff that makes the best war material, but this great conflict in Europe is on a scale that almost relegates the South African campaign to the category of a prolonged skirmish. Kitchener, however, was satisfied with what he saw there, and when a much more serious call came and the Commonwealth mark a noble response in men, the Secretary for War knew that wherever he sent these soldiers from the six States of the Commonwealth and New Zealand - they, would do their duty with unflinching courage and unconquerable determination. In selecting the men for the campaign against the Turks, Kitchener paid to Australia a singularly high compliment. The enemy is formidable. The Turks have already had considerable experience in the firing line. It has been disastrous, certainly, but none can cavil at the strength of the Ottoman forces. With elaborately-trained German officers at their head, the Turks will be a powerful enemy to dislodge, and it is to be feared that the Australian casualty lists will carry a much larger burden of sorrow, and that tears will be shed in many homes before victory is complete. Meanwhile the fight continues, and as each hero falls and pays the most heroic price of his patriotism, there will come to the Australians who were waiting at home for the sad and triumphant tidings from the front, a growing exultation of pride at the deeds which are being performed in the precious name of liberty and right in far-away battlefields.

THE Y.M.C.A.

The Y.M.C.A: has always been an institution worthy of the most generous support of the public for its many manly activities and its fine example in practical Christianity. The long history of the Association has been studded with achievement, and its expansion has represented an asset to the community of growing value. Now the Y.M.C.A, has, so to speak, gone into the firing line. It is doing a triumphant work among the soldiers at the front, and is an established - and really necessary - feature of the routine of the training camps. With great opportunities it is accomplishing great results. The public ought to recognise, in the only fitting manner that recognition can be made, the services that are being rendered. That is by cash appreciation. The demands on the financial resources of the Association necessarily have been extraordinarily heavy during these times, but with this larger sphere for expenditure has come shrinking revenues. It is the duty of the people to alter that unfortunate position. The community is the better for the Y.M.C.A. that stands and works in its midst.
 

Of course this was all before the real tragedy revealed itself at Gellipoli and the anger set in. Same with the Y.M.C.A. for very shortly it would be mired in some of the worst scandal reaching all the way to the top tiers of goverrnment. These are the last headlines of optimism and the notion of being willing servants of the British Empire. By the next month, things changed.

The following entries are extracted and transcribed from the 9th Light Horse Regiment War Diary, the originals of which are held by the Australian War Memorial. There are 366 entries on this site. Each day has entries as they occurred from 1914 to 1919. In addition to the 9th Light Horse Regiment War Diary, when appropriate, entries from the 3rd Light Horse Brigade War Diary and other regiments with the Brigade will also appear. Entries from the unit history, Darley, TH, With the Ninth Light Horse in the Great War, Adelaide, Hassell Press, 1924 will also appear from time to time. The aim is to give the broadest context to the story and allow the reader to follow the day to day activities of the regiment. If a relative happened to have served in the regiment during the Great War, then this provides a general framework in which the individual story may be told.

9th Australian Light Horse Regiment

The Regiment after the Battle of Hill 60

 

The following list is of all the men from the 9th LHR (Light Horse Regiment) who took part in the battle at Hill 60 from the afternoon of 27 August 1915 until the following morning. The 9th LHR was already under-strength and the men debilitated, but non the less, were thrown into the battle. The list is constructed from the service records from the men of the 9th LHR with the data specific to that date.

The information is sorted by fate. Each record identifies the soldier, then the squadron. If the person was taken on strength from reinforcements or another formation, this is described and the final squadron where the man was absorbed is then listed. The final information is the fate of the man. The breakdown of the numbers are:

326 men from the 9th Light Horse Regiment appear available for the assault. From this number:

Killed in Action = 36 men
Died of Wounds = 4 men
Wounded in Action = 49 men

Total Casualties = 89 men

At the same time or subsequently, some 29 men were evacuated to hospital with illness.

The balance available from the 9th Light Horse Regiment were 208 men, 38% of the regiment's nominal strength of 540 men. It explains why "C" Squadron, 11th Light Horse Regiment was absorbed as reinforcements, although renamed "D" Squadron and a company of British Infantry was also brought for extra strength.

Note: The rank of the soldier is that from the Embarkation Roll which on most occasions will equal the rank at the time of the action at Hill 60. Ranks of those who were KIA or DOW have their ranks upgraded to that held at the date of death.
