Latest offering on e-bay which you should be a bit warey of: "Light Horseman Belt and Holster". AIF Nominal Roll shows the following (possible) details about the two names on these items:1. Wooley, Archibald Fullerton, Sgt Canteens (Egypt Sec) enlisted 31/8/14 RTA 15/1/19. 2. Veale, William Charles, MC, DCM, Lieut, 2nd Division Engineers, enlisted 14/2/16. The 'Light Horsemean belt' appears to be part of a Sam Brown set, and the rank of Lieut-Colonel may have been in a post-World War One Militia unit. It seems everything these days is 'light horse' this, 'light horse' that! when in fact it may not be 'light horse.'
