This was the first Memorial to be constructed on Anzac Parade and it is located at [no5] on the walk.
The original Memorial was in Port Said, Egypt but was destroyed during the 1956 Suez crisis.

This Memorial commemorates all the Australian Mounted Divisions, the Australian Flying Corps and every other Australian and New Zealand unit and formation that served in Egypt, Palestine and Syria from 1916 to 1918.

It depicts a mounted Australian Light Horseman defending a New Zealander who stands beside his wounded horse.
