ANZAC Day ceremony


This photograph was taken by a friend who attended this year's ANZAC Day ceremony at the Australian War Memorial. The mounted soldiers are wearing what I believe is the uniform of the WWI Light Horsemen, with slouch hats featuring the rising sun badge.

Fine looking fellows, they certainly look like the Light Horse.

Having read something of the 3 Light Horse in Sinai during WW1 I find this pic impressive (and have 'borrowed' it. Very impressive men who would never leave a wounded man behind, no matter what!
