5th Light Horse Regiment Memorial TabletPrint Page
The 5th Light Horse Regiment Memorial Tablet was erected in memory of the men who served and fell in World War One.
The tablet was unveiled by the Governor of Queensland, Sir Lesley Wilson on the 19th August 1936 in memory of the 148 men who had fallen in the Great War. 2500 men had passed through the ranks of the regiment which had a splendid record for gallantry since the days when it had volunteered to serve at Gallipoli as a dismounted unit. 474 of the unit had fought at ANZAC and it was the first unit to go into action against the Turks in Palestine.
