I can't go by without mentioning the Light Horse, the Light Horse people. They were over at Milne Bay or Buna or Gona. I don't know which. I never asked them. I wasn't talking to them much.

They used to come and they'd come with the foodstuffs and that. They had sacks on the horses backs and they'd lead them along, lead them along and they used to have a bag full of chaff and that, just a few days, and they came over the top of the ridge, the Owen Stanleys.
