"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

The Australian Light Horse Studies Centre aims to present an accurate history as chroniclers of early Australian military developments from 1899 to 1920.

The Australian Light Horse Studies Centre site holds over 12,000 entries and is growing daily.

Voluntary Work

Australian Light Horse Studies Centre

 


 

We need you to join our team.

Most people think history is only for a few book worms and not for them. And yet we are all part of the rich texture that is the Australian story. Everyone is history and has some history to contribute.

 

Different jobs for different people

Not everyone has the same skills and interests and so the work is tailored to your own capacity and pace. Here are some of the tasks that need to be undertaken:

Transcription from old typed or hand written documents to digital text.

Photograph production.

Newspaper examination.

Commentaries.

Archive work.

Individual biographical entries.

Local neighbourhood history.

Collection work.

Family history.

Writing and producing your own family history.

Historical commentaries.

Small and interesting articles.

IT work.

 

These are just some of the tasks required to maintain this complex and ever expanding data base of information about the Light Horse history in the early 20th Century.

The good thing is that you don't have to have specific Light Horse information. We are constructing many items relating to the families and local communities from whence these men came. The Light Horse was not an isolated phenomenon but part of a community movement tied into the nature of the Australian cultural landscape. Every man who rode a horse came from a town, had a mother, had a family, had a job or profession, relied upon the infrastructure of Australia to maintain him in the field which required all the industries and facilities in Australia, the ships that transported the goods and all the other support that existed. But it wasn't confined to Australia alone. Included were the British, New Zealanders, French, Italians, British West Indians, Maltese, Egyptians, Syrians, Palestinians, Arabs and Ottoman Turks. In addition, there was the Boer War which included other groups. In this mix, there is a place for your talents.

Think about the way you could use your talents to improve the information available on this site.

 

Things to consider about volunteering

Volunteers go through basically two stages. The first is learning the craft. Posts are moderated to ensure they comply with specific standards that maintain the look and integrity of the site. When this is achieved, usually after about ten posts, then there is unmoderated but edited access to the site.

The items that you place on the site are done so on the basis that while you may hold the copyright, it is freely available to the internet for non-commercial purposes on a permanent basis. If you do not want to share your work in this manner, then volunteering is not something for you. However, if you have a story to tell and wish to share it freely with everyone else, then this is the place for you.

 

Drop a note to us at:

Australian Light Horse Studies Centre

We will chat about getting you started.

Voluntary Work Stages

Australian Light Horse Studies Centre

 


 

While there may be an induction and learning process to get good at making posts, you will be able to contribute within minutes of becoming a volunteer.

 

Taking yourself seriously

The Australian Light Horse Studies Centre aims to present an accurate history of early Australian military developments from 1899 to 1920. In so doing, there are no anonymous articles or items signed with a nom de plume. At the end of each item, the individual author is expected to place their true identity as the author.  The Australian Light Horse Studies Centre is no different to any other encyclopeadic work and as such, to be of benefit for authentic research and other purposes it is essential that the be properly named. As a byproduct, such a system removes people who wish to be argumentative or destructive in their behaviour, something that is all too common when anonymity is granted to contributors. By using your proper name it gives both you and the site the essential authenticity required to be highly thought of and sought after as a resource. In the end, it is the satisfaction of doing a good job and the world internet community acknowledging it.

 

Copyright

At the bottom of each page, the following notice is attached:

The Australian Light Horse Studies Centre is a not for profit and non profit group whose sole aim is to write the early history of the Australian Light Horse from 1900 - 1920. It is privately funded and the information is provided by the individuals within the group and while permission for the use of the material has been given for this site for these items by various donors, the residual and actual copyright for these items, should there be any, resides exclusively with the donors. The information on this site is freely available for private research use only and if used as such, should be appropriately acknowledged. To assist in this process, each item has a citation attached at the bottom for referencing purposes. 

As a volunteer, you become a donor when your items appear on this site and thus this notification applies specifically to yourself.

The items that you place on the site are done so on the basis that while you may hold the copyright, it is freely available to the internet for non-commercial purposes on a permanent basis. If you do not want to share your work in this manner, then volunteering is not something for you. However, if you have a story to tell and wish to share it freely with everyone else, then this is the place for you.


Stage 1

Once you are happy to undertake a particular project, you will need to learn the craft of posting on the Australian Light Horse Studies Centre website. This usually takes about ten posts. So while you are learning the techniques and the things required to make a good post, your items will be fully moderated. When it is evident that you have learnt the techniques, then you progress to Stage 2.

 

Stage 2

When we know each other and understand expectations, then the work subsequently produced will be unmoderated. You will have access to full posting rights. Each item will be available for editing and you will be expected to clear up any items and editor might suggest requires amending on the post. 

 

Feedback

On each stage you will be given feedback. 

 

Assistance

While there is a seperate item on volunteer support which goes into greater detail than this note, we have a strong policy of volunteer support. Should you need some help in formulating a direction, some writing technique or source documents, if we are able to help in this matter, we will be happy to do so. The ethos is to allow each contributor to achieve their potential. This should not be constrained by circumstance or loacation.

 

Can you see yourself as part of the team?

All the above is a fair bit to take in and so requires a lot of deep thought. It is not for everyone. Ask yourself: Can I make a positive contribution to the history of Australia?

 

Signing up

This is as easy as clicking on the email link to:

Australian Light Horse Studies Centre

Head your email with the word: "Volunteer"

In your email you might like to give some details about yourself and the areas of interest that you might like to participate in with the Australian Light Horse Studies Centre.

We will get back to you within 48 hours from sending the email.

The Archive

At the present moment, while the archives of the Australian Light Horse Studies Centre are extensive, they are not publicly available. The only available material is that which appears on the site which at present moment is less than 1% of the total archive.

As a volunteer, you will have access to the archives to assist with your specific project. To date we do not have an online service as the archive has yet to be ordered to allow such an event to occur.

However on an ask basis, we are able to pass on the specific information or source documents you may be seeking in your work.

 

Items on the Archive

 

Births, Deaths and Marriage records for:

New South Wales

Victoria

Queensland

Tasmania 

South Australia

 

Commonwealth Military Orders

The complete set of the Commonwealth Military Orders from 1905 - 1920

 

State District Orders

Complete sets where possible. To date they include:

Victoria

Queensland

 

Routine Orders

All available Routine Orders for the various light horse formations in the AIF.

 

War Diaries

This includes a collection of those publicly available and many that will never appear online.

 

Personal Diaries

A large collection of personal diaries is held to allow additional study. These are not posted on this site due to restrictions placed upon them by relatives.

 

Private Letters

A substantial collection of private correspondence exists which gives good insight into the daily lives of the men in the various military formations over the two decades.

 

Books

Rare and difficult to obtain books on all aspects of the Australian military involvement. Those in languages other than English are usually accompanied by translations. Included in this collection are all the published and unpublished unit histories.

 

Photographs

Many thousands of photographs are available in the collection relating to many different subjects.

 

Newspapers

The newspaper collection includes most available Australian and New Zealand newspapers from the major metropolitans to the little country town newspaper. The collection deals with specific time frames.

 

Maps

We have the largest private digital map holding in Australia with maps produced during this specific period relating to the light horse.

 

The Australian Light Horse Studies Centre has one of the largest and most comprehensive archives relating to the Light Horse period of the first two decades in Australia.

 

The Scope

To assist volunteers in their work, a look up of specific information service exists, thus allowing each individual volunteer to overcome an information problem due to distance and access. This service is specifically reserved for volunteers and not publicly available except at a price.

 

Do you want to explore your own story?

By volunteering to produce content for the Australian Light Horse Studies Centre web site, you are exploring your own historical roots. It is a fascinating journey which produces personal satisfaction with the discovery and helps many others understand their own story. It is a win win situation.

By becoming a volunteer, you can make this happen.
