The Light Horse Association was formed in 1986 by a group of Army Officers who had served in the 2nd 14th Light Horse Regiment (Queensland Mounted Infantry) and other interested parties who shared similar objectives to preserve the History and Tradition of the Light Horse, and to promote these objectives through the establishment of Light horse re -enactment troops and Light Horse Museums.


The Light Horse Association Ltd. is a registered Company Limited by guarantee and since commencement the Membership has grown steadily and there are currently more that 30 re - enactment Troops in Australia. Troops throughout Australia are most prominently visible on ANZAC day each year , however they perform a large number of other tasks during the year which include escorts, displays, re- enactment rides, and sporting activities.

Jennifer:

I picked up the print today from our nosy small town postal worker. "What did you get from Australia?" she asked. When I remarked that it was a print of the Australian Light Horse in WWI all that generated was a very puzzled look.
In any event the print is absolutely gorgeous . . . better "in person" than on the website! Thanks so much for sending it out so fast. Now I've got to make some wall space available . . .

Dear Mr. Marshall,

Your print on canvas "The Charge" was given to me at my retirement dinner by my officers of the Special Operations Component, Coral Springs Police Department in Coral Springs, Florida. Trully stunning rendition which captures the excitement of the moment while conveying a warmth of comeradeship to the end. It will hang in my study above my collection of King and Country Lighthorsemen collectibles.

I served 35 years with Coral Springs Police Department with the last four years as Captain of the S.O.C. which is 26 officers strong with various units (Tactical & Gang, K-9, Bikes and Substations).

Your painting made my day, thank you, F McK.
