The last Lighthorseman

November 12, 2012 @ 12:00 am - December 11, 2012 @ 9:00 pm

The Mt Evelyn RSL is proud to invite you to the launch of the book “The last Lighthorseman”
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 for the first time recorded his wartime experiences.

It is a story of sacrifice and endurance, bravery and loss, good times and bad times. An ordinary young Australian surviving extraordinary times.

Joe Clark – the Last 3rd Light Horseman.
