Summary: "When he visited the 10th Light Horse Regiment at Naval Base, Lord Gowrie watched an attack exercise. The regiment, acting as an advance guard to a brigade of cavalry, moving north from Mandurah, encountered an "enemy" force in the vicinity of the Naval Base. Twice checked by the enemy, the Light Horse gained its objective by outflanking movements each time. Lord Gowrie followed the manoeuvres from heights, overlooking the valley through which the regiment was advancing."
