"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

Australian Light Horse, Roles within the Regiment, Officer Commanding a Regimental Unit
Topic: AIF - Lighthorse

Australian Light Horse

Roles within the Regiment

Officer Commanding a Regimental Unit

 

The following entries dealing with the roles and duties within the hierarchy of a light horse regiment are extracted from a very informative handbook called The Bushman’s Military Guide, 1898. While written in 1898, the information contained in the entries held true for the next twenty years with only minor modifications with the principles remaining as current then as now.

 

Officer Commanding a Regimental Unit

 

(1.) When under instruction in Camp he is directly responsible to the squadron commander for the carrying out of all duties in Camp routine, as well as the drill in the field.

(2.) He will see that his men are ready to turn out ten minutes before "the call" sounds, and that they are formed up punctually at the time appointed for parade.

(3.) He will inspect the horses, arms, accoutrements, and saddlery at every parade, as well as on the horse lines, and inspect the lines and tents fifteen minutes before the squadron commander's inspection daily.

(4.) He will see that every horse is groomed, watered, fed at regular hours.

(5.) When ordered to water horses, he will see that the horses of his unit do not leave the horse-lines until it comes to their turn.

(6.) He will occasionally visit the men's tents during meal hours, and see that they are provided with rations of good quality.

(7.) Before Camp breaks up he will have an inventory taken of all Camp equipment issued him, taking care that all tent-pegs, tent-bags, picket-pegs, etc., are COLLECTED READY for return to store on conclusion of Camp.

Australian Light Horse, Roles within the Regiment, Subalterns

Australian Light Horse

Roles within the Regiment

Subalterns

 

The following entries dealing with the roles and duties within the hierarchy of a light horse regiment are extracted from a very informative handbook called The Bushman’s Military Guide, 1898. While written in 1898, the information contained in the entries held true for the next twenty years with only minor modifications with the principles remaining as current then as now.

 

Subalterns

 

(1.) The orders respecting officers commanding regimental units apply in general to subalterns. A strict attention to their duties on the horse-lines and other duties is required from them, and obedience to their superior officers.

(2.) Subalterns who do not command troops are to generally assist the officer commanding each unit in maintaining order and discipline. They should have a roll of the troop in their books, as well as a permanent section roll.

(3.) For the efficiency and regularity of the permanent sections, the officer commanding the unit holds them responsible.

(4.) They are, with their sergeants, to inspect the permanent sections on parade, reporting to officer commanding he unit, who (in the case of a half-squadron) will direct one of them to tell off and form up the half-squadron for his inspection.

Qualifications of Non-Commissioned Officers

 

The following entries dealing with the roles and duties within the hierarchy of a light horse regiment are extracted from a very informative handbook called The Bushman’s Military Guide, 1898. While written in 1898, the information contained in the entries held true for the next twenty years with only minor modifications with the principles remaining as current then as now.

 

Qualifications of Non-Commissioned Officers

 

"Non-commissioned officers are the backbone of an army." - Wellington.

All Ranks.

(1.) It goes without saying, that every non-commissioned officer should be, first of all, an enthusiast in all matters appertaining to his regiment, and the capabilities of the Australian bushmen, whose latent talents and mode of life particularly fit them - when developed - for military purposes, for the defence of their Colony.

(2.) He should be a good horseman, a keen sportsman, a lover of horses, a good shot, and a regular attendant at drill.

(3.) He should have "a good eye for country," and be capable of making a rough sketch of what he sees of country, or position of a body of troops, and be able to write a short report if on patrol.

(4.) He should have the respect of his fellows, be capable of issuing orders, and obtaining obedience from his subordinates at all times, and, both by tact and example, show that he is prepared to be a strong link in the chain of responsibility from the lower ranks to higher grades, which is absolutely necessary for the training, and maintenance of discipline, in any military force.

(5.) He should always have a note-book (containing a roll of his troop or half-squadron) in his possession, and a watch to time messages when on patrol or scouting.

(6.) Every non-commissioned officer must be well informed in the drills of a regiment on horseback and on foot, as well as in the use of arms.

(7.) When in Camp, their duties generally are:-

(a) To maintain discipline amongst the men;

(b) assist the officers to uphold the credit of the regiment for the correct carrying out of military duty;

(c) the care of horses;

(d) the distribution of forage;

(e) the care of Camp equipment, and its return to store in good order on conclusion of camp.

(8.) When on guard they must remember the IMPORTANCE OF THIS DUTY. They should be well posted in:

(a) general duties of guards;

(b) mode of paying complements to armed parties, officers, etc.;

(c) manner of posting sentries;

(d) sentries' orders;

(e) mode of challenging guard or visiting rounds.

The following entries dealing with the roles and duties within the hierarchy of a light horse regiment are extracted from a very informative handbook called The Bushman’s Military Guide, 1898.

(3.) He should be strictly just and impartial, scrupulously correct in his personal appearance, reporting any carelessness on the part of the non-commissioned officers and men, whether in matters of duty or dress.

(8.) He w ill see that the first guard is correctly posted, and will detail a Staff-sergeant to visit the guard and sentries daily during the training.

(9.) :He will be constantly on the alert during the training, and should be found at the orderly tent when required. The tent occupied by him should be known to the Adjutant and every non-commissioned officer in the regiment.

(11.) He will arrange the details of guards, etc., daily, and see that the Orderly Sergeants copy them into the squadron or regimental units order books, together with the Regimental Orders, checking same on conclusion of each day's orders.

(12.) He will attend at the parading of guards, escorts. orderlies, etc. No party returning from detached duty is ever to be dismissed until it has been paraded and seen by him.

(13.) He must occasionally visit the guards, sentries, horse lines or stables, and see that the various duties are conducted in a smart and soldierlike manner, in accordance with the rules of the service.

(14.) He will inspect the guard and prisoners' tents daily, and see that they are kept clean.

(15). He will see that the list of prisoners and absentees during the continuous training are sent to the Adjutant daily at 8.30 a.m.

(16.) That the Guard Report is in the orderly tent half an hour before "Orderly-room Call" sounds.

(17.) That the prisoners, evidences, and all attending the orderly-room are paraded punctually at the regimental orderly tent after the Call sounds.

(18.) He will be held responsible that all parades and duties are formed up in proper time.

(19.) He will see that all general fatigue parties of the regiment are paraded and marched off suitably dressed.

(20.) He will be held responsible that the Sergeants' Mess is in every way regularly conducted, that a good tone pervades, and that any irregularities are checked, and, if necessary, reported to the Adjutant.

(21.) He will be present at the disposal of prisoners, whom, with the evidence, he will march in and out of the orderly tent.

(22.) He will compare his watch with that of the Adjutant and Sergeant-trumpeter, and instruct the latter as to time of call for parades.

(23.) In mounted services, the Orderly Staff-Sergeant Instructor will collect the watch-setting reports, and hand them to the orderly officer, subsequently reporting same to the Regimental Sergeant-major.

(24.) Regimental Sergeant-Majors do not attend stables, but will have a general supervision over duties, viz.: Horse-line sentries by day and night, permanent group organisation, non-commissioned officers' duties in Troops, etc.
