Australian Battles, 1899 - 1920
Over the two decades covered by this site, there were 2 recorded battles fought on Australian soil. While this list is incomplete the number of further additions will be few. These battles illustrate all aspects of the Australian character.
The role of the Light Horse in these battles during this period needs to be placed in that context, ensuring that it is not overstated but also not understated too.
The compiled list is in two parts, the first being a chronological list in strict date order while the second is in alphabetical order. The aim is to allow a ready reference to a specific battle by date or name.
