Hi, If you have the latest copy of "Westralian Cavalry at War"(10th LH History), you will find in our supplement section a list of all the wounded in action. That is a start.The 5th reos of the 10th LH were fresh troops and arrived with Throssell a few days prior to the charge. Many and most of these men would have charged but only written records like letters and diaries would prove beyond doubt.Some like the Gillam brothers were on mining duties and were spared, only to go on to Hill 60 in late August and die together there.If you want a copy of the book, contact me. Good luck.
