4th/19th Prince of Wales's Light Horse Regiment Unit History Room Macleod, Victoria

NOTICE: VISITORS SHOULD REPORT TO THE GREENSBOROUGH HWY ENTRANCE TO ARRANGE ESCORT ON BASE. PHOTO ID WILL BE REQUIRED.

The Unit History Room (UHR) has been a part of the 4th/19th Prince of Wales’s Light Horse Regiment for many years. In 1969, discussions commenced within the unit to canvass the notion of a Regimental Museum. Eventually, in 1987, a Board of Trustees was formed which established the Museum with ownership of objects vested in the Trustees.

Why we are here
The UHR’s mission is to conserve, interpret and exhibit equipment, relics, icons, artefacts, memorabilia, and historical information related to:
• the 4th/19th Prince of Wales’s Light Horse Regiment;
• its antecedent, associated and successor units and elements;
including the history of these in the context of the Australian Light Horse and, the Royal Australian Armoured Corps in order to:
• understand and commemorate the Regiment’s history;
• support the morale, education and training of the Regiment; and
• promote community awareness of the Regiment’s history and achievements.

What we collect
The collection focusses on:
• matters pertaining to individual and unit histories of 4/19 PWLH and its antecedent and associated units and organisations,
• the context of these in the Australian Light Horse and the Royal Australian Armoured Corps
• related equipment and artefacts
The scope of historical interest includes military, political, social and cultural aspects

How we are organised
The UHR is an element of the Regiment reporting to the Commanding Officer and Trustees.

Getting to know us

• The UHR is open on Monday and Thursday mornings (except public holidays). We can open at other times by appointment. Group visits from organizations are welcome.

Object donations
We often receive offers of donations of objects of interest. There is increasing community awareness that, when cleaning up, objects of possible historical significance should be sent to a museum rather than the tip.

Museum practice is for object donations to involve a transfer of ownership to the museum. Potential donors sometimes ask that it be treated as a long term loan, “in case I want it back one day”. If you are not happy to let it go, then it is better to keep it. In the case of medals, we would like to be sure that the family agrees to the donation.

Not all donations are of particular relevance to the UHR. With a clear title to the item, we can transfer it to a more appropriate collection. Or, we may decline a donation.

Situations vacant
The UHR is looking for volunteers who can commit for the long haul. The types of work involved include: preparation and maintenance of displays, photographing and cataloguing of objects, escorting visitors, and picture framing.

In accordance with museums practice, the Unit History Room DOES NOT provide valuations of objects

We are located at Simpson Barracks, Watsonia.

The Young Egyptian Students influenced the Natives to oppose British Administration, what they called Tyranny. They professed to have sufficient competent educated men to govern their own affairs, but our Heads would not hear of it. Consequently the riots. Many ? and soldiers killed. All railways and communications disorganised. It took several months to bring things to their normal ? Pictures of medals 1. In honour of General Falkenhaugh GOC Turkish Forces 2.

The owner of these snaps belongs to the 5th Regiment of the 2nd Brigade, and he took the camera from a Turkish Officer. It had only 6 snaps of a spool of 10, and the BIll Jim finished off the spool by taking 4 of the special entry into Jerusalem.

Plenty of water and the Jacko's tried their hardest to hold on to this pozzie. Often our chaps met the gamer Turks in the dead of night, because both sides were on the same game, crawling down for water. This stunt is known as the Junction Fight. 30 Official entry Dec 11th.

Memorabilia of 908 Dvr Thomas Edward Whyte, 3rd Light Horse Field Ambulance, World War 1 READ THIS. During the last war I sent these pictures home through devious channels. When I lobbed back I found them all pasted in these albums by my young brother Billy. He was only a kid then! Nowadays he is serving up North. Went away with the original 9th Battn. Was in the Blitz on England and served in Libya, Tobruk, Greece, Crete and Palestine and was twice knocked. It's not long since the last upheaval 1914-18 and I wonder if these boys think as we did. This will be the last war? I sincerely hope so. TW
