Australian Light Horse Studies Centre

1901 began the first century of Australian Federation. One enduring legend developed from the beginning of this new nation to take its place as an icon of Australian history, that is, the Australian Light Horse. Formed in 1903 from a long series of state traditions reaching back many decades, the Light Horse is closely identified with the values to which most Australians aspire and so strikes an formidable chord within the national narrative. With this movement came the various Australian themes of mateship, lending a hand, and specific symbols such as the Charge at Beersheba and the use of emu plumes in the felt hat. As time progressed, the Light Horsemen seem to have taken on a mythical quality that transcends the reality of their story. The Australian Light Horse Studies Centre was established to peel away these legends and present an accurate description about this era. Through careful scholarship this site aims to provide people who have an interest in this particular phase of Australian history an ability to meet with the historical Light Horsemen and so gain a clear version of the life lead by these men, their families and the society in which they lived during the formative period from 1899 to 1920. It is through accurate commentary that these folk gain their honour and well deserved place within the Australian Story.

District: Northern New South Wales

New England, Upper Hunter River and Liverpool Plains.

From 1897 to 1903, the Northern District of New South Wales formed part of the 1st Australian Horse catchment area. In 1903 during the Commonwealth reorganisation, this section was severed from the Southern District and a new formation created known as the 6th (Australian Horse) Australian Light Horse Regiment. On creation, the 6th Australian Light Horse Regiment altered its uniform to be in line with other Light Horse formations with the khaki uniform. In 1906 it changed its territorial name from the Australian Horse to the New England Light Horse. A new badge was struck with their own motto which effectively severed all previous sentimental links.
