No Brandt appears to have served in the Light Horse in WW1 unless he transferred out and into another unit at some point during the war. You'd need to get a copy of his service dossier from National Archives to check that. Far more likely that the story is a family myth. It was (and still is) common for people to claim - either deliberately or through ignorance of the facts - that their ancestors fought in the Light Horse. You can check for yourself at the AWM website. What makes you think a Grace would have married your 'silly woman' grandmother anyway?
