The memory of the Light Horse Brigade who served in the First World War was honoured today as the Mudgeeraba Light Horse Museum unveiled its Anzacs and the Light Horse informational booklet.
State and local politicians attended the launch of the booklet, which is being released on time for the Anzac Centenary later this week.
Member for Mudgeeraba Ros Bates said she was proud to have supported the production of the booklet to ensure that the memory of the Anzacs and the Light Horse Brigade is honoured.
“The Mudgeeraba Light Horse Museum does important work in ensuring that our future generations remember and honour the memory of the Anzacs and the Light Horse Brigade, and this booklet will ensure that students fully appreciate of the contribution they made,” said Ms Bates.
“The book has been designed to be given to students who visit the Light Horse Museum to learn about the history of the Anzacs and our nation.
“I am looking forward to local Mudgeeraba students visiting the Museum and learning what their forebears did to protect our country during the First World War.”
Museum vice president Brian Bertwhistle AM said the booklets would go a long way to honouring the memory of those who served.
“The role of the Mudgeeraba Light Horse Museum is to collect, preserve, and display memorabilia related to the Australian Light Horse, its predecessors and successors,” said Mr Bertwhistle.
“Light Horse regiments are recognised as an important part of Australian military history, and already we have seen 600 local students visit our Museum to take part in our educational program.
“This is an ongoing program, and we are looking forward to continuing to educate local students this Anzac Day and through to 2018.”
