WW1 Australian light car patrols

Recommended Posts

Anyone know of anybody doing any research on the WW1 light car patrols in the desert. By chance my wife has a relative in the light car patrols. British not Australia but there are a pictures and some original documents. He does appear to have done some service with the Australians. Anyone interested send me a pm.

'Pioneers of Australian Armour' by D Finlayson and M Cecil, covers the complete history of the Aust Armoured Car Battery that became the Aust Light Car Patrol, the Aust Light Car Patrol service, and the Special Tank Personnel, the last group constitutes the first tank unit in the AIF and Aust PMF.  Also marketed in the UK by Pen and Sword as 'Pioneers of Armour', (much to the authors' annoyance, as it covers ONLY Australians! )

Would like to see what you have on the Light Car Patrols, if possible, please.
