Description

Papers relating to the First World War service of 887 Private Albany Thomas Fredrick Varney, 12th Light Horse Regiment. This is an extensive collection of letters, postcards and other documents that spans the period from Varney's enlistment with 12th Light Horse Regiment and his subsequent embarkation and service, to his eventual return to Australia, discharge and later life. Varney documents his training and selection in Sydney, his journey overseas, and transfer to Gallipoli. He joined the 6th Light Horse Regiment at Gallipoli for the duration of the campaign. Varney describes the conditions he faced, describes in detail prominent locations he visited such as Jerusalem and Gaza, and describes the Battle of Beersheba. Varney's writings also provide an insight into the daily conditions faced by civilians and enemy soldiers, in particular in and around Damascus and Jaffa after the fighting. Also included are a detailed series of maps of the different theatres of war during the First World War, as well as various documents relating to Varney's service and later life.
