"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 Battle of Beersheba

Palestine, 31 October 1917

2nd Signal Troop Unit History Account

 

2nd Australian Signal Troop

[From: AWM picture P00061.009]

 

At the conclusion of the war, an officer belonging to the 2nd Australian Signal Troop produced an unpublished manuscript in 1919 called 2nd Australian Signal Troop, which included a section specifically related to the battle of Beersheba and is extracted below.

 

Anonymous, 2nd Australian Signal Troop, unpublished:

 

On the evening of the 30th October 1917, the whole Anzac Mounted Division, moved up towards Beersheba. The Anzac Mounted Division cable wagon, which was following the column, was laying the wire as the 2nd ALH Brigade moved along.

2 miles south of Amara, the 2nd ALH Brigade, halted to allow the 7th ALH Regiment to go ahead to clear the place of the enemy. One pack set went along with them with sufficient wire to lay to their objective. Upon the post being found clear of the enemy, the 2nd ALH Brigade, pushed forward till 0700, when a short halt was made for breakfast. We pushed forward at a hand gallop at 0730 eventually taking up a position for Headquarters, about 5 miles north east of Beersheba and 2 miles east of Sekatia. Visual communication all day with Anzac Mounted Division, and Regiments.

The work with Divisional Headquarters, was very heavy, until sundown, a lamp was then brought into play, but although we called all night at regular intervals no reply was received. The wireless was erected but was unable to raise Anzac Mounted Division. Telephone communication with 5th and 7th ALH Regiments. (6th ALH Regiment in reserve).

Next morning (1st November) a line was laid from Divisional Headquarters, they having established their Headquarters at Tel el Saba. The 6th A.L.H. Regiment moved out further across the Hebron Road, and the line was extended to them from the old Regimental Headquarters, of the 7th A.L.H. Regiment. Visual common. with Anzac Mounted Division, and Imperial Camel Corps Brigade along the hill tops directly north of Beersheba.

2nd Light Horse Signal Troop

Embarkation Roll: A - Z

 

The following is a composite alphabetical roll of all members of 1st Light Horse Signal Troop, AIF who are known to have embarked overseas during the Great War.

Each man is listed with:

Service Number

Rank at Embarkation

First Names

Family Name

If applicable, the false name used

 

Notes

Note 1: All soldiers’ names are linked to the specific unit and date when embarkation occurred. By utilising the link, upon the Embarkation Roll is a brief military biography of the individual. Also on the page are details and picture of the ship in which embarkation occurred for that specific soldier.

Note 2: There are duplications of some names in the following list. The reason for this is that the soldier embarked on more than one occasion. This was the simplest way of resolving the problem of multiple entries for a single individual.

Note 3: In comparing this roll with the official Embarkation Rolls published by the Department of Defence during the Great War, it will be noticed that some names are absent. The reason for this lies in the fact that when the official Embarkation Rolls were compiled, last minute absentees for one reason or another were recorded as embarking whereas in actuality, no embarkation occurred. In addition, there are other names that have been included that do not appear in the official Embarkation Rolls and yet they embarked with that particular group.
