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.

His orders from David Lloyd George were to capture Jerusalem by Christmas. And that’s exactly what he did, making a low-key entrance on 11th December, 1917. He replaced General Sir Archibald Murray, who led two costly and unsuccessful attempts to invade the Turkish province of Palestine in the First and Second Battles of Gaza. Allenby launched the Third Battle of Gaza on 1st November 1917. He threw out Murray’s strategy of a frontal attack against the heavily entrenched Turkish troops.
Te Ara - New Zealand Origins The First World War was caused by the destabilisation of the balance of power in Europe due to the rise of Germany. The war began in 1914 when Austria-Hungary invaded Serbia because of the assassination of an archduke. Countries had made alliances with each other, and soon most of Europe was at war. New Zealand was part of the British Empire, and when Britain declared war on Germany, in August 1914, that meant New Zealand was at war too.
