We hold a considerable number of objects relating to the light horse in the 8/13 Victorian Mounted Rifles Collection. They range from the hat worn by Alex Borthwick at the charge at the Nek; the memorial album prepared by Mr Justice H.B. Higgins following the death of his son at Magdhaba, a copy of the McGrath/Austin history of the 8th Light Horse prepared immediately after the war from the unit War Diary, and relics brought back from France by members of the 13th LH. We also have King’s Banners presented to 8th LH (c. 1904 & 1927), a unit banner sewn/organised by Mrs Chisholm and replica guidons of 8th, 13th and 20th Light Horse. We have a photographic Collection taken/collated by Sapper Murray Gyles, a Corowa boy who was posted to the photographic section in the Middle East so it contains wonderful photos of the light horse.
The Albury Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen’s Club display is rotated to feature particular events. Currently, we have a Noreuil exhibition on display commemorating the part played by the Albury Battery in the Bullecourt which resulted in the naming of the Park in Albury. A Beersheba exhibition at the Club is planned to mark the centenary of the Charge.
