The last Light Horseman
A J McAleer
The story of Trooper Joe Clark Australia's last surviving 3rd Light Horseman of the Great War.
A year and a half after his older brother had been killed in action during the Battle of Pozieres, 20 year old Joe Clark went against his father’s wishes and left his job as a timber cutter in Tasmania to enlist in the Australian Light Horse.
Seventy three years later, at the age of 93, he sat down with the Mt Evelyn RSL’s historian and recorded his wartime experiences. It is a story of sacrifice and endurance, bravery and loss, good times and bad. An ordinary young Australian surviving extraordinary times.
Soft cover, photographs, 120 pages.
