Prior to embarkation, the first 12th Australian Light Horse Regiment, AIF, produced a photographic record of the Regiment. Since there are no other official photographs existing of this Regiment, this has become the best reference for that unit. We have named photographs of various members. Not many, but they are in this booklet. Also the various sub-units have been photographed. While we are not able to name the men in the photographs, we do have a record of their anonymous images.
12th Australian Light Horse Regiment, AIF, embarked from Sydney, New South Wales on board HMAT A29 Suevic, 13 June 1915 and HMAT A44 Vestalia, 22 June 1915.
