Summary: During the 10th Light Horse regiment's four-month training camp at Naval Base in early 1940, the Governor-General, Lord Gowrie, attended a training session to inspect the state's defence forces. The 600 men in camp were mostly from the rural South-West, leaving farm work behind and bringing their own horses to train for possible deployment overseas, though this never eventuated and they remained a home defence force.
