Plugges Plateau Posted 2 November , 2013 Share Posted 2 November , 2013 Have read two excellent books lately involving the Light Horse Brigade's. Read Gallipoli to Tripoli - History of the 10th Light Horse Regiment AIF 1914-1919 by Gill and Browning (I see Ian is on here) and Hamilton's The Prince of Valour. And herein lies my confusion and would hope maybe we can discuss a bit more of the story and particularly with regard Hugo Throssell and his involvement. Firstly there is confusion (to my mind) over which charge Throssell H, was involved in. Hamilton quite clearly says the 4th charge on page 139, "Hugo Throseel was commanding the extreme right of that fourth line" but Ian Gill at least implies he goes with the 3rd charge. Obviously I don't know but there is conflicting information that I'd be very interested to clear up and also I have read Ian's recent thread regarding the timings of the first charge and he alludes to a couple of 'blues' being apparent although he doesn't get an opportunity to expand as the thread is closed. Please Ian, I'd love to hear more on your take of all of this and perhaps try to make more sense in a tradgedy that clearly makes no sense whatsoever.
