Keiran Bailey resides in Victoria, Australia.  He has generously donated, to all the men of the Blackhorse, a cigarette lighter that he found on an Australian beach near his home.  The lighter is inscribed, "Black Horse 11th CAV, Xuan Loc, Vietnam and it is dated, 1969-1970.  This lighter obviously belonged at one time to a Blackhorse Trooper.  The lighter was 38 years in the surf and is remarkably preserved.

Keiran was killed while riding his bicycle in March of 2011.
