For those who might be interested, I've just added some photos on my blog of the Canterbury Mounted Rifles reenactment group in action on Anzac Day today.


Thanks for taking a look.

Very nice, Stacky.

Useful extra snippets of information scattered throughout too. Lovely to see the infantry uniform, which my Grandfather wore too. He served in the Auckland Regiment, before becoming part of the NZ MG Corps.

Just a minor point, cavalry almost always dismounted to engage the enemy with musketry. The charge was rare, though it was possible. Australian Light Horse used long bayonets on at least one occasion to facilitate a charge but I don't know of any mounted NZ regiments doing this.
