This 2nd edition is an updated edition.
Now scarce in Hard Cover.
The Gallipoli campaign saw the men's introduction to war, albeit without their horses, and where the Regiment sustained heavy casualties, especially in the actions at The Nek and Hill 60 in August 1915.
Following this campaign the men were reunited with their horses in Egypt, going on to serve in the Middle East in Sinai, Palestine and Syria, followed by the Egyptian Uprising in early 1919.
The narrative is divided across these two very distinct episodes in the Regimentís history, with each author covering in their own styles, the Gallipoli and Middle East campaigns.
There are hundreds of photos, both in the narrative and in a photo chapter in the back of the book. Numerous appendices allow for the book to become an important research tool when studying this fine West Australian regiment of light horse. It is hoped that this book will sit well alongside all the other regimental histories, both old and new on the men of the Australian Light Horse.
The book contains a detailed history of the regiment from formation, embarkation, Gallipoli, the Desert Campaign and the return home. The narrative was written using as many eye-witness reports, diaries and journals as possible. Includes Nominal Roll, Honour Roll, Commonwealth War Graves List, Wounded in Action Roll, Honours and Awards, Embarkation List, Manpower Statistics, Camel Corps Transfers, 3rd Machine Gun Squadron Transfers, The Nek and Hill 60 Casualty Lists, Photographic Supplement and Nominal Index.
