Moment of war relived
AS THEY rode across the Story Bridge through smoke and lights, four members of the 11th Light Horse Warwick-Montrose Troop relived a century-old moment in history.
Ray Kuhn, John Pollard, Russell Broderick and Mark Saunders rode into the history books as they joined a World War I centenary commemoration ride through Brisbane's CBD on Saturday afternoon.
Mr Saunders told the Daily News the ride had been organised in the past two years by the Australian Light Horse Association.
"It was amazing - the best experience I've ever had," he said. "I'm still on a high."
"It's surreal in a sense to think about what those guys would have been going through as they rode to war," Mr Saunders said.
Riders and horses spent most of Saturday getting used to the noise of jets, helicopters and sirens.
