The Light Horse were militia units and didn not serve with the 2nd AIF. WHen they were dismounted in 1942 they were reformed into various units with little or no connection to light horse,,,,, some were light armour (Bren Gun Carriers) some were transport some were machine gun units. Many members transfered to 2AIF units voluntarilly. THe only really mounted unit was the Northern Aust. Observer Unit,,, commonly called Curtin's cowboys who served as mounted patrol units in the far north.
