WARWICK is renowned for its horsey nature and significant role in the First World War, yet we don't have our own Light Horse troop.

Trish and Ray Kuhn are trying to change that, but they need your help.

"Our main aim is to build a troop here, to keep our heritage alive," Mr Kuhn said.

They and four other Light Horse members travel to Gatton to participate with the Lockyer troop but think it is time the town that had so much to do with the war had their own.

"But we can't do it unless we get more members," Mrs Kuhn said.

"Warwick is such a horsey place; we could make it the biggest troop in the country."

Mrs Kuhn said a new troop was a matter of preserving Australia's history in the Rose City.

If you're interested in joining the Warwick troop to-be, phone the Kuhns on 4661 7971.
