The Mounted Soldiers of Australia — Australian Light Horse Association Horses have played a special role in the story of Australia. For the first hundred years of European settlement they were the only means of transport across most of our huge country. Outside the few cities, ability to ride a horse was almost as basic as the ability to walk. The value of the mounted soldier in Australia was first shown in 1804 when redcoats of the New South Wales Corps set out in pursuit of a large force of rebel convicts who had broken out of the Castle Hill Prison Farm. Riding with the commanding officer of the Corps was a trooper called Thomas Anelzark, a member of Governor King's mounted convict bodyguard. After this, men of the "bodyguard", already described as "lighthorsemen", played an increasingly important role and were fore-runners of a semi-military mounted police force.. Some of the British infantry regiments stationed in Australia found the need to create special mounted units. At first Britain was wary of using untried, unprofessional colonial cavalrymen.

WW1 Battlefields of the Western Front The long line of battlefields that makes up the Western Front runs through a wide variety of landscapes in south-west Belgium, north-eastern and eastern France. The battle lines wind their way across the countryside from the sand dunes and flat, reclaimed sea level land on the Belgian coast in the north, to the mountain peaks at 1,400 metres (4,500 feet) above sea level in the Vosges mountain range at its southern end. From a geographical point of view the range of landscapes on which the Western Front battlefields were established include sand, clay, chalk and rock, rivers, canals, valleys and cliffs, ridges and mountains, plains, forests and swamps. When visiting the battlefields it can be seen how the geological make-up of the ground and the peculiarities of the landscape inevitably played a major part in influencing strategy, tactics, development of new weaponry and fighting techniques in the battles of the Western Front.

Missed In History: The Gallipoli Campaign | Stuff You Missed in History Class Water carriers take a break from carting water to the front lines at Gallipoli during the heat of the summer months. Date unknown. (Photo by Philip Schuller/Fairfax Media via Getty Images) I’ve been watching a lot of “Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries” … and reading a lot of them, too. Two of the series’ recurring characters, Bert and Cec, fought together at Gallipoli in World War I. Based on context, it seemed as though they — and many of the other Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) — were particularly affected by a campaign that came across as particularly brutal and sometimes horrifying. Thanks to Oxford University Press for sending us a review copy of “Great Battles: Gallipoli” by Jenny Macleod, which was one of the sources for the show today. Our listener mail is from Jeff, who writes about segregation in Nevada following our Harlem Hellfighters episode. Episode link: The Gallipoli Campaign My research: Australian War Memorial.
