Queensland Mounted Infantry

Portrait of Trooper Atkinson, 2nd/14th Light Horse Regiment, Queensland Mounted Infantry
Oil on Stretched Canvas
460mm x 610mm
2009
Official Army Art Collection


"During my time with SECDET IX, it struck me as remarkable that such young men were members of the unit. This young digger, Trooper Parkinson, was one of the Light Horsemen of the 2nd/14th Light Horse Regiment, Queensland Mounted Infantry. His young features bely the significant responsibility on his shoulders."

"When other young men of his age are busy getting drunk and wreaking mayhem on others back home, this young digger is doing his duty at the behest of his government, far from home."
