"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

History:

Extracted from  RK Peacock, Evolution of Australian Light Horse Regiments 1841-1935, p. 17.

17th Light Horse Regiment (Prince of Wales Light Horse)

The 17th Light Horse may be traced from the Kyneton Castlemaine and Sandhurst (Bendigo) troops of the Royal Volunteer Cavalry Regiment raised in 1862. Through the years 1863 to 1874 these troops formed part of the Prince of Wales Regiment of Light Horse (Hussars). These troops were later disbanded and in 1884 a troop was raised at Sandhurst styled the Sandhurst Cavalry Troop which lingered on for a few years till 1891.

In the Federal re-organisation of 1903 no mounted unit existed at Bendigo, Castlemaine and Kyneton. It was not until the year 1911 (3 January 1911) that a unit styled the 19th Light Horse Regiment was formed with headquarters at Bendigo and squadrons at Bendigo, Elmore, Rochester, Echuca, Kerang, Pyramid Hill, Mintaro, Castlemaine and Kyneton.

At the re-organisation of 1912 the 19th became the 17th Light Horse, in the following year (1913) the 17th (Campaspe Valley) Light Horse. It continued under this title until 1927 when it was styled the 17th (Bendigo) Light Horse, and in 1931 the 17th (Prince of Wales's) Light Horse.

Regimental Structure 1903 -1920

This section explores the evolution of the Regiment from its first origins as a Commonwealth formation. Each year maps the movement of men and often locations of the various Squadrons and Troops. To get the flavour of the Regiment, it is best to begin the journey at 1903 and follow though each year till the end.

Machine Gun Training

 

Cross country riding

 

Feeding the horses

 

Inspecting the horse lines

 

The photographs on this page are extracted from the colour footage taken of a troop from the 17th Australian (Prince of Wales Light Horse) Machine Gun Regiment in Australia during Easter Camp, sometime in the late 1930's. While filmed in the late 30's, the activities are timeless.

The clip details the day to day routine that was part of the life of a serving Light Horseman. Daily duties included "Stables" where the horse lines were mucked out, the horses groomed, fed and watered. This was a twice a day ritual. Part of this is captured in the latter part of the film footage. Other items include machine gun firing practice, cross country route marching, having lunch after feeding the horses, horseback wrestling and lines inspection.
