35 years ago a then Aussie correspondent sent me a page from an unknown magazine. The photo showed several members of the army dressed as WWI Lighthorsemen. They were taking part in a feature length color film being made by a Melbourne Film Co. "Cambridge" about "Gerardy"'s character in his poem from WWI "Lofty Lane". NOBODY ever heard of this! NOw I have had a letter from the Army Historical Research unit putting me directly in tiouch with the one survivor, the man who played "Lofty" in this long-lost & forgotten film! I'll be in touch with him & hope to turn up what really happened & IF the film still exists some place? If so, it comes between Chauvel's "40,000 Horsemen" from 1940 & Simon wincer's "The Lighthorsemen" from 1987. Eureka. Cheers, John.
