"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

Instructions have also been received that the Banners presented to  the Australian Light Horse Regiments, Royal Australian Artillery, the Victorian Rangers, and the Australian Army Medical Corps (GO 258/04) are not King's Colours, but honourable insignia presented by the King as a special mark of favour in recognition of valuable services rendered in South Africa in 1899 to 1902 and that Honorary Distinctions are not to be borne upon these Banners.

Military Order No. 123, 1908 was the recognition by King Edward VII of the services rendered by Australian formations during the South African conflict.


Since the formations to which the Battle Honours were allotted had ceased to exist, the Territorial formation from whence the men emerged, were sustained and to where they went  subsequent to the Boer War was the formation to which the Battle Honour was allocated.

Military Order No. 123, 1908 formalised the process of Battle Honour allotment to the correct Territorial formation.

This particular order details the designated names of each cadet unit in South Australia prior to the Great War. It is interesting to note the difference in Senior Cadets where they met at various militia depots and Cadet units which were based at a particular high school. This list also provides an interesting social examination of the high school establishment in South Australia highlighting population centres with sufficient population to allow the formation of a viable cadet unit. Another social statement was the grouping of South Australian private schools into the 1st Battalion.

Military Order 151, 1907
Topic: Militia - Military Orders

Military Order 151, 1907 deals with the syllabus for an up coming officer training course for 15 carefully selected candidates.

Military Order 151, 1907

[Click on picture for larger version.]

Examination of this order relating to the training of officers reveals a great deal about the mindset of military at the time. In 1907 the Civil War in America was still instructive, especially that of Stonewall Jackson. In addition, they are examining the latest information from the Russo-Japanese War. It is interesting that the experience of the Boer War is not taken into account in Officer training, something that did not occur until about 1915 for the Light Horse. For the infantry, it would have been more instructive to look at the consequences of massed cannonades at Gettysburg and Port Arthur on charging troops as well as the importance of entrenchments for the defenders. The romance of war is key to this training course rather than the reality of mechanised warfare.
