THE LIGHT HORSE.

WESTERN AUSTRALIA'S CONTRIBU-

TION.

When thc organisation of thc second j Australian contingent was first decided j upon, Western Australia was asked to con- tribute a squadron of Light Horse, and the call met with such a ready response that within a few days the whole of the 148 men required had been selected, wbilemany more, who were offering in the country districts, had to be refused. On Saturday night, however, instructions were received by thc military authorities in Perth from headquarters to raise a whole regiment of 1 Light Horse (556 officers and men), instead of the original squadron, and the neces- sary arrangements are now in progress. It is expected that the work of enlistment will be commenced toward the end of the present week, and no difficulty is antici- pated in getting the required number of men. Thc new force will be known as thc Tenth Regiment of the Third Brigade.
