Anzac Day, 25 April, is one of Australia’s most important national occasions. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.
The troop depicts the Light Horse of World War 1, not to glorify war but to preserve the memory of the Australian Light Horse and to perpetuate the ANZAC traditions such as mateship and national pride, within our current society. From it’s inception the involvement of the youth of Australia has been a major focus of the Troops activities and membership. This level of access to historical context and values has ensured traditions, embodied in the Australian Light Horse, are carried forward within the conscientiousness of our nations future.
