My grandfather enlisted as a lighthorseman - have a photo in his uniform - on 4 Jan 1916 from Laidley, Qld. I believe I've read that horses were unsuited to the terrain in France so many of the light horseman were transferred to other regiments. If so, when did this happen? before they left Australia?
