"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

Order of Battle

 

 

The Charge at Beersheba painting by George Lambert

 

During the Middle East Campaign from 1916 to 1918, the Australian Light Horse evolved to meet the challenges presented by circumstances and combat. The first division that was formed containing the Australian Light Horse was the Anzac [Australian and New Zealand] Mounted Division created in April 1916. Initially it was anticipated that the mounted formations would embark for service in France until the General Officer Commanding the Egyptian forces, General Murray interceded to keep them in Egypt. Consequently only the 13th Light Horse Regiment and the 4th Light Horse Regiment “B” Squadron embarked for France. The remainder were formed into the Anzac Mounted Division.

The table below maps the transformation of this initial division as it was split into two divisions and the changes that occurred until the end of 1918. Each unit that formed part of the divisions is mapped on a linear basis. Where blank spaces occur, the unit that originally occupied the cell was no longer part of the division.
