"The Breaker" - Lieutenant Harry Morant a charismatic roustabout had before the war made a name for himself as a hard-drinking, womanising bush poet and gained renown as a fearless and expert horseman. 
 
Morant had enlisted with the Second Contingent of the South Australian Mounted Rifles. After promotion to  Lieutenant he joined the Bushveldt Carbineers, in February 1901. The irregular unit was under the command of an Australian, Colonel R.W. Lenehan.
Morant's unit was very successful in eliminating roving bands of enemy commandos.

Morant avenges the death of his friend, Captain Hunt who was killed by Boer guerrillers.
