Remote Name:


My Great Grandfather and Great Uncle served in the 5th Light Horse Regiment during WW1. I am interested in any information regarding my relatives. Thier names were Trooper Griffith Thompson and Trooper Andrew Thompson. Thier names are recorded on the memorial in Tairo, Qld. I am currently posted to 5th/7th Battalion (Mechanized), The Royal Australian Regiment on operations in East Timor and previously have been on operations with 1st Battalion in Somalia. I got quite a thrill thinking how close I was to thier theatre of operations when I was in Somalia. I would like to gain any information I can about my relatives but also of the Regiment in general. I can be contacted via email on or by post c/- 'Akala', Langmorn Road, Raglan Qld 4697
