The launch and first showing of ‘The Greater Sunshine Coast Anzac Equestrian History Project’ DVD will be held at Cooroy RSL Club on Wednesday 22nd April at 5.30pm. The DVD highlights some of the modern day links with the history of the original Anzac Light Horseman from the Sunshine Coast region.

The Noosa Institute for Socio-Economic & Environmental Research (NISER) conducted filming throughout the region with re-enactment troops and individual interviews as well as filming at local events such as the unveiling of the life size bronze light horseman and horse statue at Hervey Bay, the Toogoolawah Beersheba Day anniversary celebrations and the 100 horse enlistment ride in Brisbane in September 2014.

The DVD centers on recounting and recording the local Sunshine Coast Anzac Equestrian History based on those who served in WW1. It outlines the strong contribution of manpower and horses made by the Light Horsemen who enlisted from the Greater Sunshine Coast region.

The launch of the DVD in the lead up the Anzac day forms part of the Centenary of Anzac Celebrations supported by the Queensland and Federal Governments. They provided funds ($29,500) along with sponsorship from organisations such as the Bartercard Foundation ($10,000 Trade Dollars) so that the team led by local film maker James Muller could tell the story and recount memories of people who had links to the Anzac Equestrian History.
