10th Light Horse Regiment AIF Memorial

Recommended Posts

gilly100

I often park up in Kings Park to read notes for work or to take a lunch break. A magnificent spot overlooking Perth city and the Swan River. I always look in on the 10thLH Regt Memorial where the names of their fallen are marked. Here are some snaps.

7 August 1915 holds great significance for the 10th Light Horse. Wreaths laid today.

387 Trooper Phillip William Archibald Crowe died of wounds sustained in the fighting at Hill 60 on this day - 31 August back in 1915.

He died at the 16th CCS aged 32. A photo of him came to light a few years after we published our book on his regiment, the 10th Light Horse.

His diary proved invaluable though.

Here are a couple more men who fell on 7 August 1915 at The Nek. All around Kings Park you can see and remember those that fought and died. Beautiful yet haunting part of Perth and a MUST see.

Dear Gilly

          Excellent photos.  I notice one of the markers is for Henry T Chipper, Is he related to Ross and Lindsay Chipper?

                                    Regards

Thanks Steve for the info posted.

I am pretty sure the two sets of brothers were related. No doubt part of the Chipper Funeral business so long established in Western Australia . Sandra might know?

Dear Steve and Ian

                             According to the Australian War Memorial Arthur Rupert 's father was K L Chipper of 130 Onslow Rd. West Subiaco, Western Australia.He was also the father of Henry Thomas I would assume.

                                                      Regards

Here is another plaque.  I pulled up to do notes, backed in and here was another man killed in the charge on 7 August.

Had to pop it up.

On that brothers list in our 10 LH book you helped us with Steve, we have Amos and Clarence as brothers. I would not be surprised if some of the others were related in some way either. Nice work.

Cheers

And a couple more who fought and died as a result of the fighting at Hill 60. Archie Crowe whose portrait photo features by scrolling up, has his plaque situated most prominently in Kings Park. I held up traffic for the photo at the roundabout.
