Light Horse MemorialPrint Page Print this page

The Light Horse Memorial statue commemorates the men and animals who sacrificed their lives for their country during World War One. It evokes the memories of local men who were members of the 10th Light Horse Regiment during that conflict. 

The 10th Australian Light Horse Regiment AIF was the only AIF light horse regiment recruited in Western Australia during the First World War. 

The regiment was raised in October 1914 when it became apparent that Western Australia could provide more than a single squadron of mounted soldiers. The regiment joined the 3rd Light Horse Brigade in Egypt and served dismounted at Gallipoli. The regiment's most famous actions were the charge at the Nek on 7 August 1915, and Hill 60 on 29-30 August.
