I think that there has been some debate as to weather "Sandy" was the only veteran mount to be returned to australia. It is belived by some that a second horse was returned to Australia, under the sponsorship of a Sydney newspaper, in about 1924 after a campain by the same newspaper. It is unknown if the second horse was actually a desert corp. vereran or just a horse to meet the requirements of the newspapers story (not suggesting that a newspaper would be dis-honest). Comments? Regards, Xile
