278 Farrier Sergeant Edwin Ray GOODALL
278 Farrier Sergeant Edwin Ray GOODALL served with the 5th South Australian Imperial Bushmen in South Africa. This is a record of his journey.
If there is one item that contains a wealth of detail regarding the participation of a Regiment within the Sinai and Palestine campaign, it is the Routine Orders. Each paragraph hints at enough material to make an exciting chapter in any book.
To add further to the Regimental story, the War Diary entries for the periods covered by the Routine Orders are placed in line. They should be read in conjunction to get a clear picture of the Regiment.
The Routine Orders of the 12th Light Horse Regiment are not complete and so are filed as found. During and after the conclusion of the war, no great imperative was felt for their preservation. Their needs had been served and so preservation was of the lowest order. That we have them today is a blessing and we can only thank the foresight of the clerk who preserved what we have now.
