"At a mile distant their thousand hooves were stuttering thunder, coming at a rate that frightened a man - they were an awe inspiring sight, galloping through the red haze - knee to knee and horse to horse - the dying sun glinting on bayonet points..." Trooper Ion Idriess

Light Horse Militia in Australia from 1903-14

 

Militia – Light Horse Officers appointed as Area Officers from 1910-14

 

In 1910, a new position of Area Officer was established in the Militia. His essential role was to assist in the carrying out of the provisions of the Defence Act, within his area.

Militia Structure in Australia from 1903 to 1914

 

The part played by the inter-war Militia Light Horse in creating the basic structure of the Australian Imperial Force Light Horse formations is understated in the histories dealing with the operations during the Great War. The period from the Boer War to the Great War saw remarkable changes in thinking about the nature of Australian defence and the role of the mounted infantry. This section aims to fill some of the gaps.

Australian Light Horse Regimental list for 1903

 

The coming of Federation brought a radical change in the Australian Militia structure. The 1903 re-organisation was the first step in Federalising the defence policy of Australia. Each Light Horse Regiment that was formed is detailed on the list below. Each page details the name of the Regiment with its motto, its precedents in the State’s militia, the Territorial Title, the catchment area of the Regiment in the specific state, the uniform adopted by the Regiment, and the first officer cadre of the Regiments as at 1 July 1903, although the list is current to 1 February 1904.

Militia Unit Locations in Australia in 1910

 

The reorganisation of 1903 was Australia wide and dealt with all formations and units. In every state new units were created from consolidating older formations or formed because of population availability. Each state had a complete range of military functions although the scale varied according to population size. This section is a state by state analysis of the militia with each town identified detailing its specific role within the defence system.

 

 

Town by Town, Australian Militia activity location list 1910

 

The following list is a compilation of all towns which were known to have some form or another of militia activity. It aims to be as comprehensive as possible. It is noticeable that there are quite a few towns within the list that no longer exist. Nanine in Western Australia is one example. A bustling gold mining town at the turn of the century, it is now a land mark with no trace whatsoever of its former past. Other towns have had name changes, especially the German names which were changed during the Great War. The towns that were on the periphery of major cities soon were absorbed and became just another suburb. The list has 1,527 entries, each indicating a discrete militia activity.

Militia - Military Orders

 

When Military Orders were issued, they appeared in the Commonwealth Government Gazette. However, it was quickly recognised that this was a cumbersome manner in dealing with specific military orders and thus the orders were collected and published within a single volume on an annual basis commencing from 1905. The annual Military Order volumes provide historians with a wealth of detail about the structure of the Militia and the methodology of undertaking its functions. In addition, the various manuals that were utilised in training were also published through this source enabling one to keep abreast of the contemporary military thought. This thread utilises some of these entries to demonstrate the material available despite it being presented in a drab format.

Militia - Rifle Clubs

 

One of the secondary props of the Militia system was the quasi Militia Rifle Clubs. Although these were funded by the Department of Defence with rifle ranges, rifles and ammunition, and the men who were members wore uniforms and were drilled, they were not part of the Militia. These clubs were formed reservoirs of semi trained men who resided in sparsely populated areas where it was impossible to build a formal Militia structure. So they filled this intermediary role which became an important element in providing a recruiting structure for the AIF.

Hints on Rifle Shooting

 

At the beginning of the new century, the well known and top Australian rifle shooter, P. Fargher of the Melbourne Rifle Club wrote the book called Hints on Rifle Shooting, published by Sands and Mcdougal in Melbourne. The text deals with all the problems people found with the commonly available service rifles employed in the first decade and beyond within the Australian military forces.
