Mates,

You may notice I am going throw the ICC soldiers and rechecking those men who had there service in the the 4 LH Bde units. I just found another I missed .
Most ICC members crossed over in June/July 1918 on the disbandment of the ICC, but other crossed over as reinforcements or as this man was claimed by his brother already in the 12 LHR.

HEARNE   Wallace   2922   Pte   12 LHR   8R to isol camp 6-17 to CTU 7-17 tos 3Co/1Bn ICC 8-17 to ASqn/12 LHR (claimed by brother) 9-17 to hosp (malaria) 11-17 rtn 2-18 to hosp (malaria) 11-18 rtn 1-19 att guard AIF HQ 5-19 rtn 6-19 later WWII VDC brother James 12 LHR

His brother shows he served in both A Sqn and C Sqn, but was in A Sqn at Beersheba.

HEARNE   James Samuel   1548   Pte   12 LHR   6R tos C Sqn 4-16 to A Sqn 4-16 to hosp (septic hand injury) 4-17 rtn 5-17 T/att guard Imperial MD HQ 5-17 to C Sqn T/att rest camp 10-17 rtn to A Sqn 10-17 (B) to AProvC Cairo 3-18 rtn C Sqn 8-18 to hosp (malaria) 11-18 rtn 1-19 to hosp (malaria & hand injury accident) 5-19 RTA MU lost finger  brother Wallace ICC

Mates,

I added another former Camel Corps soldier to the 4 LHR at Beersheba which I missed or didn't add to the list.

HUMPHREY   Ernest Frank   2241   Pte   ICC   8R to LH Dtls camp 3-17 to ASqn/4 LHTR 4-17 qual hotchkiss MG 5-17 tos ASqn/4 LHR 6-17 to B Sqn A Troop? date? (B) to L/Cpl B Sqn A Troop? (from brodie) 8-18 to T/Cpl B Sqn A Troop? (from larking) 11-18 AKA Ernest Frank Ingles Humphrey

I am unsure if he was still in A Sqn or had moved to B Sqn at Beersheba, I am thinking the A Sqn may refer to the 4 LHTR when he was there, and was TOS B Sqn in June 1917

He served possibly in A Troop ans his prom to Cpl from Brodie and Larking both were known B Sqn men, again possibly A Troop?

So I placed him on the B Sqn list so untill better details show up thats the best we can do.

Again if you have any problems here let me know.

Cheers

Bob,

Sorry but its been that long I forgot my details on how to accses this site, (don't know if I used my full name and or my pass word)?

Anyway sorry I don't have much contact with other members, and if so on another site.

Also I don't know of any other Light Horse sites around, while I do use the British WWI site called the "Long Long Trail", its ALH content is limited?

I don't know why we all have not come back to this site, as you say it was well used until the conflicts destroyed the site.

I still try to keep adding content, as it is still a good place to find the history of the ALH, but I like feed back, as I am not always 100% correct, as much as I try to be.

The site is still well seen by the public as the number of views given next to the subjects/comments show.

Cheers

S.B

Thanks Steve - both MOSELEY and BUTLER are new to me.

Seems Lionel MOSELEY was in the UK again in Nov 1916, though there doesn't seem to be a mention of it in his records.
He married Dorothy Patience FOLGATE on the 18th November 1916 at St Matthews Church, Marylebone, London.
He then signed a Stat Dec in London on the 23rd assuming his real name for the army authorities.
Dorothy and her son Arthur later came out to Australia in 1919 on the Orsova - she remarried in 1921 to Herbert Mills FRAIL (ex AIF).  Her son served in WW2.


Guy BUTLER married Gladys Seymour KEAY in the Jan-Mar Qtr of 1917 at Chesterton, Cambridgeshire


Cheers, Frev

Frev,

No details on wife other then she RTA with a child

His father Sir Richard is not found by me, so who was he?

PS

sorry I now found what I wanted on his father

During the war

"In February 1912 Butler again took office under Peake as minister of mines, minister of marine, and commissioner of public works (until November 1914 when he became commissioner of crown lands). The ministry was defeated at the March 1915 election. In 1917 after the Labor Party split, Peake again formed a government with Butler as treasurer; he was also minister of railways until May 1919 and of agriculture for five months. He consolidated his reputation for sound though frugal administration, taking some notable initiatives in the building of the Outer Harbour at Adelaide, once named 'Butler's Folly', and the locking of the River Murray. He had been knighted in 1913."

Cheers

Steve – yes I do have this couple – their correct date of marriage is 30/3/1916 – the date of 18/4/1918 is the date the marriage extract was transcribed.
The confusion with her surname probably comes from the fact that she was a widow.

Her maiden name was Florence WALKER – she married Ernest F.W. RAGGATT in 1905 Wales, and he died in 1912 – she then married Arthur Lloyd RAGGATT 30/3/1916 at the Parish Church, Llantwit, Neath, Glamorgan, Wales.

Cheers, Frev
