    Found this great photo,had to share
    Oh,what i wouldnt give for this uniform .

    Described by,
    Mr Aaron Pegram - Historian at the Australian War Memorial:
    "My educated guess is that daddy was a 1915 reinforcement to the 7th Light Horse Regiment (service bars, colour patch, lanyard, spurs) who most probably won his Military Medal in Sinai-Palestine (the regiment was also on Gallipoli), and that the photo was taken in 1919 after he returned to Australia. "

    Cheers Mick
