  • "Light-Horse, are cavalry lightly armed and accoutred, and furnished with horses lighter than those of the heavy dragoons; they are armed with a sabre and pistols." (citation in list description)

    This phrase always reminds me of The Lighthorsemen. I kind of wish I were literary enough to instantly think of "The Charge of the Light Brigade," but I'm not. I think of Australian movies instead.
