The Regiment was raised in October 1914, fought in Egypt, Gallipoli, Sinai, Palestine, and Mesopotamia, and was then disbanded in Australia in August 1919. A total of 4000 officers and men passed through the regiment during the war. Of the original 500 who embarked, only 41 survived. Of unusual interest are the descriptions of the final advance into Syria (Homs and Tripoli), and the rebellion in Egypt in 1919. The Regiment had the distinction of capturing the only Turkish unit Colour to be taken in the Middle East campaign. Roll of Honour (with ranks, dates and causes).
