Only one came back:
Just one horse out of approximately 130,000 sent away to the First World War returned to Australia. According to Professor Ernest Scott, author of the volume of the official history dealing with the Australian home front, the sole exception was said to have been “the charger of General Bridges”, a horse known as Sandy.
