One of 49 photographs in an album from World War I likely to have been taken by Troop (later Lieutenant) G.S. Millar depicting the Light Horse camp in Egypt, 1915, prior to Gallipoli.

Image depicting a group of tethered, untacked except for head collars and leads, horses belonging to the "A" Troop, C Squadron. Inside the camp horses were tethered with head and heel ropes between longer ropes known as picket lines. The saddle and other equipement associated with each horse was kept in front of the animal. Some of the servicemen can be seen amongst the horses; in their spare time the men attended to their horses, this strengthened the bond between the men and their mounts.
